BOSTON (AP) -- Boston plans to mark the traumatic week of the Boston Marathon bombings with mournful silence as the city returns to its bustling commute.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has asked residents to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. Monday, the time the first of two bombs exploded near the finish line. Bells will ring across the city and state afterward.

Authorities on Friday made the unprecedented request that residents stay at home during the manhunt for 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He was later discovered hiding in a boat covered by a tarp in suburban Watertown.  His 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during a getaway attempt. The motive of the two ethnic Chechen brothers from southern Russia remains unclear.

The bombings killed 3 people and injured more than 180.

Senator: Marathon bombing suspect shot in throat

BOSTON (AP) -- Authorities in Boston aren't saying whether they've questioned the surviving brother accused of bombing the Boston Marathon.

Nineteen-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in a hospital with a gunshot wound to the throat and can't speak.

His older brother Tamerlan was killed Friday in a getaway attempt.

Authorities waiting to question bombing suspect widow

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- An attorney for the widow of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says she didn't know her husband was a suspect until she saw it on TV.

The attorney says Katherine Tsarnaev worked up to 80 hours a week as a home healthcare aide and Tamerlan Tsarnaev stayed home to take care of their toddler daughter.

Authorities haven't yet been able to question the widow.
