Bostonians Return To Work, School

UPDATE:

BOSTON (AP) - Bostonians are back at work and at school for the first time since a dramatic week came to an even more dramatic end on Friday.
   
Authorities had made the unprecedented request that residents stay home during the manhunt for Dzokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. He was found Friday evening hiding in a boat covered by a tarp -- hours after his older brother was killed during a violent getaway attempt.
   
Traffic has been heavy on major arteries into the city today. Parents are dropping their children off at schools, some for the first time since last Monday's bombings that killed three people.
   
At a high school just a block from the bombing site, Carlotta Martin said leaving her kids there has been the hardest part of getting back to normal. Her children, 17-year-old twins and a 15-year-old, walked into the building, glancing at the police barricades a few yards from the front door.
   
Martin said she's "nervous," and added, "Hopefully, this stuff is over." She said she told her daughter to text her so she'll know everything is OK.
   
On Norfolk Street, where the suspects lived, neighbors say they thought they saw some more detectives this morning. But unlike Friday, the street is open today.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

BOSTON (AP) - A U.S. senator says the hospitalized suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was shot in the throat, raising questions about his ability to speak to investigators.

Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana told ABC's "This Week" that there are questions over whether Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be able to talk again.

Coats said that doesn't mean the 19-year-old can't communicate, but he's "in a condition where we can't get any information from him at all."

Tsarnaev was captured from a tarp-covered boat in a suburban Boston yard Friday night and remained hospitalized in serious condition Sunday.

Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, were in a shootout with police early Friday. Tamerlan was killed and Dzhokhar fled the scene bleeding.
