Boston bombing suspect attended classes, parties in days after the attack

Boston (CNN) - Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, appeared on the campus of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth every day after the attack until late Thursday, a university official told CNN. Tsarnaev attended classes as well as parties in the dorms during that period.

Tsarnaev is registered as a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, reportedly majoring in marine biology. The university ordered its campus evacuated on Friday. The school is located 65 miles south of Cambridge, just west of New Bedford.

The 19-year-old suspect was taken into taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt in Boston. An earlier shootout with police left his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev - the other man wanted in the bombings - dead.

The younger Tsarnaev is in serious condition, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said at a news conference. He is being treated at Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Kelly Lawman said.
