Law enforcement could not apprehend the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, despite a massive manhunt today, but state and local officials told city residents that they don’t have to stay inside anymore.

“There is still a very very dangerous individual at large, but we feel confident,” Gov. Deval Patrick, D-Mass., said during a press briefing this evening, that “we can return to living our lives.”

Patrick added that “we are where we were effectively as of Monday night or Tuesday morning, with a few exceptions,” noting that the older of the brothers suspected of carrying out the attack has been killed.

One of the Boston police officials said that law enforcement is “going to draw back our tactical teams but the state police will be providing additional patrols to Watertown over the next two to three days.” He said that many tips had come in directing police to “various places in eastern Massachusetts,” but that, unfortunately, “none of those leads have been fruitful to this point.”
