WATERTOWN, Mass. (WWLP) - People who work in the city of Boston are being allowed to return home Friday afternoon, as police are advising them to shelter at home, rather than at their workplace.
Many residents of Boston-area communities followed Governor Patrick's orders to stay home, as the manhunt for Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains the subject of a massive manhunt centered in the Boston suburb of Watertown. Others, however, did venture out to work in Boston, and now Homeland Security officials are telling them to head home rather than staying at work.
In addition to Watertown and Boston, residents of the nearby communities of Cambridge, Belmont, Newton, and Waltham are being told to stay inside their homes as the manhunt contiues.
