BOSTON (AP) - Bostonians are back at work and at school for the first time since a dramatic week came to an even more dramatic end on Friday.
Authorities had made the unprecedented request that residents stay home during the manhunt for Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. He was found Friday evening hiding in a boat covered by a tarp -- hours after his older brother was killed during a violent getaway attempt.
Traffic has been heavy on major arteries into the city today. Parents are dropping their children off at schools, some for the first time since last Monday's bombings that killed three people.
At a high school just a block from the bombing site, Carlotta Martin said leaving her kids there has been the hardest part of getting back to normal. Her children, 17-year-old twins and a 15-year-old, walked into the building, glancing at the police barricades a few yards from the front door.
Martin said she's "nervous," and added, "Hopefully, this stuff is over." She said she told her daughter to text her so she'll know everything is OK.
On Norfolk Street, where the suspects lived, neighbors say they thought they saw some more detectives this morning. But unlike Friday, the street is open today.
