Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick in Watertown on Friday reiterated earlier police warnings to Boston-area residents to stay inside, and let law enforcement comb for the second suspect in the marathon bombings.

The search for Suspect No. 2 is taking place through several neighborhoods, Mr. Patrick said. It may take hours. But the public can help by staying off the streets.

 “Stay indoors,” he said. “Do not open your doors.”

One MBTA officer who was seriously wounded during the search effort is now in surgery, Mr. Patrick said. Another MIT officer has been killed.

Police said the bombers are brothers. Suspect No. 2, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, is 19 and police are actively searching for him. Fox News reported that he had received a $2,500 scholarship to study at an elite Latin school in Cambridge.

The other suspect was killed in a shootout with police and was 26 years old, Fox News reported. His name has not been released, but police say the brothers hail from overseas. They are believed to come from Chechnya – where there’s a huge terrorist presence — or perhaps Turkey, and have been in the United States for about a year, various media reported. - Cheryl K.
