NORTH DARTMOUTH (WPRI) - The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth campus was closed and evacuated Friday after the university confirmed that a suspect in Monday's Boston Marathon bombings is a registered student at the school.
"Out of an abundance of caution, the campus has been closed," University spokesman Robert Lamontagne said in a statement. "Students, staff and faculty who have not already evacuated have been told to shelter in place. No one is being allowed on campus."
Boston-area colleges and universities were closed and public transportation services halted as law enforcement officials conducted a massive manhunt for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, who is believed to be one of the two suspects in Monday's explosions. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police overnight.
Monday's marathon bombings killed three and injured more than 170 people.
The FBI considers Tsarnaev armed and dangerous.
