UMass Dartmouth closes campus after confirming that bombing suspect is student there

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has closed campus and ordered an evacuation after confirming that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is registered there.

The school did not say what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is studying or whether he had lived on campus. Police are still searching for him.

School officials say they closed the campus "out of an abundance of caution."

Student Brie McCarron tells The Associated Press that police and SWAT teams have descended on campus. She says students who know Tsarnaev say he lives in a dormitory.

She says: "Everyone is freaking out."

Dartmouth is about 65 miles south of the area where authorities are searching Tsarnaev.
