State police officers have closed off a stretch of New Bedford’s Carriage Drive in front of an apartment complex. This is about four miles from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where one of the two suspected bombers was registered as a student. .
A state trooper at the scene — who said he cannot be quoted by name — said that “two or three” individuals were taken away for questioning in connection with the Boston bombings, but that he didn’t know the details. He pointed to two lighted windows of a unit on the first floor and said officers were inside collecting evidence.
