BOSTON, Mass. (CNN) – Two men terrorized Bostonians with violence overnight, and police believe they could be the same men who planted bombs that killed three in the Boston Marathon Monday.
One of the suspects is dead after a shootout with police, said spokesman Captain Paul MacMillan.
The other man is still at large, he warned, and believed to be armed and dangerous. Officers from various police departments and the FBI are searching house to house in the neighborhood of Watertown, Massachusetts, to try to track him down.
Boston police circulated a surveillance camera image of the man, which resembled photos of one of the two suspects sought after for their alleged involvement in the marathon attacks.

Two violent incidents kept Bostonians on edge over night, just days after the bombing of the iconic Boston Marathon. It started with the shooting death of a college police officer Thursday night and ended with a carjacking that may have involved explosives early Friday.
Police believe at least one suspect used explosives against their officers in the second incident.
Howling sirens pierced the night quiet, and flashing lights lit up the darkness, as dozens of officers from state and city police responded to the deadly shooting on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. Hardly an hour later, they were chasing at least one suspect in a hijacked vehicle less than five miles away.
Police cornered the vehicle in the suburb of Watertown and arrested a suspect. He may have used explosives in the futile attempt to elude police, police spokesman Dave Procopio told CNN.
