Boston (CBS News) -
A tense night of police activity just days after the Boston Marathon bombings has caused police to converge on a neighborhood outside Boston where explosives and gunfire were heard.
The chaos in Watertown, about 10 miles west of Boston, occurred just hours after a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was shot and killed on campus. CBS News has learned a suspect was under arrest and brought to a hospital, and a manhunt was on for one or more others.
The officer had been responding to report of a disturbance Thursday night when he was shot multiple times, according to a statement from the Middlesex district attorney's office and Cambridge police. It said there were no other victims.
In Watertown, multiple gunshots and explosions could be heard at about 1 a.m. Friday. Dozens of police officers and FBI agents were in the neighborhood and a helicopter circled overhead. The bomb squad was on the scene.
