Authorities think Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may have explosives


WATERTOWN, Mass. — The sound of gunfire has been reported in Watertown, where authorities spent Friday searching for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. The shots came shortly after state officials lifted their order for people to stay indoors.

Television footage showed police and emergency vehicles responding to a building on Franklin Street on Friday evening.

Julia Cavanaugh, who lives in Watertown, went outside with her daughters after the lockdown was lifted. Then shots rang out.

"We were outside and heard them and grabbed the kids and ran inside," she said.

Officials ordered people in the area to again stay indoors
