NEW YORK — One of the two suspects wanted in Monday’s deadly Boston marathon bombing was killed in a dramatic standoff with police officers in Watertown, Mass. A manhunt was under way for the second suspect, the police said.
Using guns and explosives, the two men engaged in a violent standoff with dozens of police officers Thursday night, the police and residents said. The showdown came after the fatal shooting of a campus police officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The suspect at large had been identified earlier in the day by F.B.I. officials as suspect No. 2, pictured in photos distributed by the agency wearing a white hat.
