Police have a neighborhood surrounded in Watertown, Massachusetts as they search for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. His brother, another suspect, was killed in a fierce firefight overnight.

Berkeley Brean spoke with a former Rochester resident who lives near Watertown. We asked her what it’s like to be locked-down in her apartment with the manhunt going on. Karyn Schmidt said, “Very unsettling. I have faith in the FBI and the Boston Police Department and all the authorities. I know they're doing the best they can. I believe that they will catch the suspect but it's still very scary to be told that we're not allowed to leave.”
