Three associates of Boston Marathon bombing suspect taken into custody by the FBI

Authorities took three college-aged people into custody today in New Bedford in connection with the investigation into Boston marathon bombing suspect Ddzokhar A. Tsarnaev, a police official said.

New Bedford police Lieutenant Robert Richard said his department assisted federal investigators in executing a search warrant at a home on Carriage Drive in New Bedford, about 10 minutes from the campus of the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, where Tsarnaev was a student.

Richard said the FBI took two men and a woman into custody.

“They appeared to be either fellow college students or fellow residents,” he said.

Richard said Tsarnaev may have been affiliated with the home on Carriage Drive in some way – possibly having lived or visited the house.

No further information was immediately available.

The UMass Dartmouth campus was shut down today in response to the ongoing manhunt for Tsarnaev. All students were evacuated from university buildings and residence halls.
