    Default a suspect in Monday's deadly Boston Marathon bombing

    US police are hunting a suspect in Monday's deadly Boston Marathon bombing, after another suspect was killed in a car chase and shoot-out.
    BBC News - US police chase Boston Marathon bomb suspect

    Hi,

    Is this right?

    I guess it should be "US police are hunting a suspect of Monday's deadly Boston Marathon bombing."

    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds fine to me. I don't know if this is BrE- let's see what other speakers say.
