Authorities: 1 Boston Marathon bomb suspect dead

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Doctors at a Boston hospital where a suspect in the marathon bombings was taken and later died are saying they treated a man with a possible blast injury and multiple gunshot wounds.

Doctors and officials at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center wouldn't say if the patient they treated, who came in with police, was the suspect in the black hat from marathon surveillance footage.

Authorities say one bombing suspect was still on the loose following a shootout during which explosives were thrown at police. Residents of Watertown, just outside Boston, were told to stay in their homes.

An emergency room doctor says he heard gunshots near his home in Watertown and knew he needed to get back to the hospital.

Doctors and hospital officials say they don't have any information on the identity of deceased patient.
