Update: Tonight's Red Sox, Bruins, Big Apple Circus performance postponed

 

BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox and Bruins postponed their games tonight while authorities searched for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Also canceled is the Boston Comic Convention, scheduled for tomorrow and Sunday at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Organizers say all tickets purchased in advance for the show will be honored when it is rescheduled. 

No makeup date was announced for the opener of the Red Sox three-game series against the Kansas City Royals scheduled for tonight at Fenway Park. The Bruins game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden was tentatively rescheduled for Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

The bombings near the marathon finish line on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180. Police identified two suspects. One was killed during a shootout with police and the other was being sought in a massive manhunt Friday that virtually shut down the city and some suburbs.

Red Sox players and other team employees had been told to stay home until a decision was made on whether the game would be played.

Earlier, the Bruins and Penguins cancelled their morning skate.

Saturday's originally scheduled game between the Buffalo Sabres and Penguins in Pittsburgh was rescheduled for Tuesday night.

 More as this develops.
