CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) --Police at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say a suspect in the fatal shooting of an officer is no longer on campus.
MIT is urging its 11,000 students to "remain vigilant" and has canceled classes today.

The MIT officer was shot Thursday night on the prestigious university's campus just outside Boston. He was pronounced dead later at a hospital.
The school released this statement: "MIT is heartbroken by the news that an MIT Police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty on Thursday night on campus, near Building 32 (the Stata Center). Our thoughts are now with the family."
The shooting comes just days after twin bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line killed three people, wounded more than 180 others and led to an increase in security in the region.
