WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- Massachusetts State Police say the at-large Boston Marathon bombing suspect fled on foot and may not have a car.

Col. Timothy Alben says police have no indication Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a vehicle.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says mass transit service is resuming in Boston even though Tsarnaev is still on the lam.

Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors. The other suspect, his brother, died in a desperate getaway attempt.

The brothers are suspects in Monday's marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Government officials say Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev traveled to Russia last year and returned to the U.S. six months later.

The 26-year-old Tsarnaev died in a police shootout overnight.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they couldn't publicly talk about an investigation in progress. One says that Tsarnaev traveled out of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

Investigators believe that Tsarneaev and his brother Dzhokhar are responsible for the deadly Boston Marathon terrorist attack. Dzhokhar is still being sought. The ethnic Chechen brothers are from Dagestan, which neighbors Chechnya in southern Russia. They lived near Boston and had been in the U.S. for about a decade, an uncle said.

One official said there are no known ties at this point to Chechen extremist groups.

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- State police say officers are going door-to-door, but the Boston Marathon suspect is still on the loose.

Col. Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police said Friday afternoon that officers would go street to street as the manhunt for the bombing suspect continues. Gov. Deval Patrick urged residents to continue staying indoors.

A pair of brothers is suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint.

The suspects' clashes with police began hours after the FBI released photos and videos of them. Monday's bombings killed three people and wounded more than 180 others.

Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar is on the loose.
