WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Cambridge, Mass., on Wednesday to attend the memorial service for the MIT police officer killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.
    
That's according to a White House official, who was not authorized to discuss the trip publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
    
Authorities say the two brothers suspected in the bombing shot 26-year-old Sean Collier multiple times on Thursday night in his police cruiser, killing him.
    
Collier's memorial service is planned for midday Wednesday at MIT's Briggs Field. The vice president's wife, Jill Biden, will also attend the service.
