Days later, police say the two bombing suspects murdered an MIT Police officer Sean Collier, 26, which kicked off a massive manhunt. MBTA Transit Officer Richard Donohue was shot and seriously injured during Thursday night’s violent chase and manhunt.
On Saturday, visitors added personal tributes and remembrances to a growing memorial along the barriers on Boylston Street in Boston that blocked off the bombing scene from the public.
