Police Officers Continue to Search for Bombing Suspect

Boston, MA -

24 hours after the FBI released photos of 2 suspects who are brothers, one is dead, the other is at large.


Heavily armed swat teams have been searching the normally quiet Boston suburb of Watertown today looking for 19 year old Dzhokhar Tsarnev.  He and his 26 year old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnev were both named as suspects by the FBI on Thursday.   Tamerlan died in a shootout with police overnight. 

Police zeroed in on the brothers after they shot and killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus police officer.  They also robbed a convenience store, and carjacked a man driving a mercedes S-U-V.

The younger Tsarnev, from a former Soviet Republic near Chechnya, became a U.S. Citizen September 11, 2012.  Sources say the dead brother had posted Jihadist videos on the internet.
