Police Officer Sean Collier was shot and killed during a large scale manhunt for suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing. Shortly after reports of shots fired on the MIT campus, Officer Collier was found in his vehicle at about 10:30 p.m. with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The suspects carjacked a vehicle and drove to Watertown, where one suspect was killed during a confrontation with police. The second suspect remained at large several hours later.
Officer Collier had served with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Department since January 2012 and had previously worked as a civilian employee of the Somerville Police Department.
