UMass Dartmouth evacuated amid suspect search
BOSTON (AP) -- The University Of Massachusetts Dartmouth has closed campus and ordered an evacuation after confirming that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is registered there.
The school did not say what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is studying or whether he lived on campus. Police are still searching for him.
The school said they closed the campus "out of an abundance of caution."
Student Brie McCarron tells The Associated Press that police at SWAT teams have descended on campus. She says students who know Tsarnaev say he lives in the Pine Dale dormitory.
She says "Everyone is freaking out."
Dartmouth is about 65 miles south of the area where authorities are searching Tsarnaev.
