Watertown: The suspect in the fatal shooting of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) police officer is no longer on campus and students have been advised they can resume normal activities, the university said on its website on Friday.
"MIT Police have determined that the suspect in this evening's shooting is no longer on campus," the university said on its emergency information site. "It is now safe to resume normal activities," the statement said.
It was not immediately clear if the suspect had been apprehended or had fled.
A police officer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was shot to death at the university's Cambridge campus, touching off a manhunt in a community on edge just days after the Boston Marathon bombing.
