Two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing killed an MIT police officer, injured a transit officer in a firefight and threw explosive devices at police during a getaway attempt in a long night of violence that left one of them dead and another still at large Friday, April 19, 2013.

DARTMOUTH, Massachusetts  — Students at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth tell The Associated Press that Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was on campus this week after the bombings.

Tsarnaev is a student at the school, about an hour’s drive south of Boston.

Students say he lived in a campus dormitory. Harry Danso, who lives on the same floor, tells the AP he saw him in the hallway this week, and Tsarnaev was calm.

The school was evacuated Friday morning amid a manhunt for Tsarnaev.

FBI and police teams have been seen on the campus.

    College classmates, high school classmates, coaches, wrestling and boxing teammates, teachers, neighbors and co-workers and their parents could only say good things about the brothers…. The only person who knew these brothers and called them cowards and losers was their own blood uncle… who incidentally hasn’t seen the brothers since 2009….

    Almost all mass killers in the states were described pretty much as loners, psychos, madmen, abused by parents during childhood, raped by pedophiles, weak, holding grudges against the government, spending too much time listening to radical muslim clerics, etc…. none of which describes the brothers who were described as very athletic, friendly, helpful, caring, leaders, never been in trouble with the cops or even school authorities…. somethings amiss here…

    mahirap malaman kung ano ugali ng terorista. …siguro kung gusto nyang basagin ang mukha ng mga malalakas tumawa na kapitbahay mo sa oras ng tulugan or sa sintunadong kanta ng kainuman….probably may pagkaterorista sya
