(SEARCH DOGS) After leading police on a wild chase, one of the suspects in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings was killed early this morning. The city remains in a state of security emergency as hundreds of heavily armed police offers conduct an immense door-to-door manhunt for a second suspect, essentially shutting down large parts of the city. Law enforcement officials have identified the suspects as brothers, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26. Authorities say the surviving suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is wounded and leaving a blood trail, making him a prime target for search dogs. With bomb-sniffing dogs hard at work in most major cities throughout the country, nose-detecting police dogs could very well lead to the capture of the criminal. As the pursuit grows in intensity, law enforcement officials throughout New England continue to chase down leads. Read the article below for more details on the search. — Global Animal
