Northwest Student in Boston

The man hunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing and the M-I-T shooting has affected a Northwest Missouri State University student.

Senior, Matthew Liemkheluer, of Marshall, Missouri, was planning on visiting Northeastern University in Boston for a graduate-school interview. Northeastern is about half a mile away from where the M-I-T shooting occurred. Liemkheuler found out about the lock down early Friday morning.

The city of Boston was on lock down for close to 18 hours during the man hunt for the 19 year old suspect. Liemkheuler says this doesn't happen often but Boston has set a good example for the rest of the country.
