WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in serious condition under armed guard at a Boston area hospital this morning.

Investigators have been unable to question the 19-year-old suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing so far, but U.S. officials say a special interrogation team for high-value suspects is ready. Justice Department official says the Boston Marathon bombing suspect will not be read his Miranda rights because the government is invoking a public safety exception.

Officials say Tsarnaev and his brother set off the twin explosions at Monday's marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 180 others.

Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police earlier Friday.

Authorities say the brothers also killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer during their spree.

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth remains closed as law enforcement officials continue their investigation into a student suspected as the Boston Marathon bomber. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev lived on the third floor of the Pine Dale dormitory. His classmates say that they saw him on campus after the bombings and that he was calm.
