(AP) — The Boston Marathon bombing suspect who was killed overnight had studied accounting as a part-time community college student.
Bunker Hill Community College officials say that 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a student there for three semesters: fall 2006, spring 2007 and fall 2008.
Spokeswoman Patricia Brady said Friday they had little information on Tsarnaev other than that he studied accounting at the Boston school.
Tsarnaev had been known to the FBI as Suspect No. 1 and was seen in surveillance footage in a black baseball cap.
The other suspect is his 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar. He was a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

MEMA: If you are at work, we do not expect you to stay there. Feel free to get in your cars and drive home. Public transit is not running, but taxis are available. Call friends and ask them to pick you up.
The brothers' aunt, Anzor, is speaking to reporters. I cannot take this kind of information lightly. Where is the evidence? Otherwise you can shoot anybody on the street like a chicken.
Brothers' aunt: You have to have a motive first. Something that would drive you to some actions. You cannot go crazy for just one day. As far as I know they were fine, in good health, of good mind. What happened?
Aunt: How many bombings went off in Russia? Every action that happened in Russia was about to be blamed on Chechans. You think I would believe easily anything your government, my government, would tell me? No. Evidence. Evidence.
Aunt: Convince us. We don't have anything. Show me the picture where he is putting down the bag and that this bag is the one. Show me that.
Aunt: I don't trust FBI. I don't trust any agencies.
Aunt: Tamerlan was working at different stores. At one point was delivering pizza as well. Dzhokhar was studying. Their mother would sometimes exaggerate what the boys were doing.
