MIT officer killed identified

Sean Collier

BOSTON (NBC) — A young college police officer has been identified by authorities as the latest casualty of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

Sean Collier, 26, of Somerville, was an officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass. He was found shot in his vehicle on the campus late Thursday night as authorities pursued two brothers named as suspects in Monday’s deadly marathon attack.

MIT Police Chief John DiFava described Collier as “a dedicated officer who was extremely well liked by his colleagues and the MIT community” in a press release on Friday.
