Police ID Boston Bombing Suspects as Brothers

Posted: Updated:

UDPATE:

Police in Boston have released a new photo showing the man believed to be a suspect in the marathon bombings, shown in earlier footage in a white hat.  

In the new photo, he's wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt pulled up on his head. The photo was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston. 

AP sources identify the man as 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, of Cambridge, Mass. He is the bombing suspect who is still alive. The other bombing suspect was killed overnight in an exchange of gunfire with police. 

The sources also say both men are from a region of Russia near Chechnya, and have lived in the U.S. for at least a year.

UPDATE:

Authorities say one of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing is dead and a massive manhunt is underway for another.

Residents of the Boston suburb of Watertown have been advised to keep their doors locked and not let anyone in.

Boston Marathon Bombing Investigation Timeline:


Key moments related to the search for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, based on reports from the Middlesex County district attorney, Massachusetts State Police, and Boston police.

- At 5:10 p.m. Thursday, investigators of the bombings release photographs and video of two suspects. They ask for the public's help in identifying the men.

- Around 10:20 p.m., shots are fired on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, just outside Boston.

- At 10:30 p.m., an MIT campus police officer who was responding to a disturbance is found shot multiple times in his vehicle, apparently in a confrontation with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. He is later pronounced dead.

- Shortly afterward, two armed men reportedly carjack a Mercedes SUV in Cambridge. A man who was in the vehicle is held for about a half hour and then released unharmed at a gas station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.

- Police soon pursue the carjacked vehicle in Watertown, just west of Cambridge.

UPDATE:

 The Middlesex district attorney says the two men are suspected of killing an MIT police officer at the college late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint and later releasing its driver unharmed. Hours earlier, police had released photos of the bombing suspects and asked for the public's help finding them.

Authorities say the suspects threw explosives from the car as police followed it into Watertown. The suspects and police exchanged gunfire and one of the suspects was critically injured and later died.

 Police say the suspect on loose is a "terrorist" who "came here to kill people."

UPDATE: Police say one of two suspects in the shooting of an MIT police officer is dead and a massive manhunt is underway for another, who is tied to the Boston Marathon bombing.

 Shortly after the MIT officer was shot Thursday night, police got a report of a carjacking in Cambridge, just outside Boston.

 Police say of the at-large suspect, "We believe this to be a terrorist."

UPDATE:

Police are converging on a neighborhood outside Boston where there are reports of explosives being detonated, and police are telling reporters to turn off their cell phones.

Police and the National Guard are in Watertown, where the media have reported hearing gunfire and explosions.

A helicopter has been circling overhead. News stations showed police with their weapons drawn, surrounding at least one man on the ground.

Earlier in the evening an MIT police officer was shot and killed. It is unclear if the events are in any way linked.
