A day after the fatal terror attack on the Boston Marathon, authorities warned the city’s residents to keep their guard up Tuesday amid a massive investigation to uncover a clear reason for the bombings.

Three people died — including an 8-year-old boy — and more than 170 were injured when the twin blasts went off near the finish line Monday afternoon.
