Boston Bombing Suspect Killed in Shootout, Second Suspect at Large

Originally posted 04/19/2013 06:10AM

One of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings is dead after the killing of a university officer and a shootout with police, and a massive manhunt is underway for the other, authorities said early Friday.

Police have locked down some neighborhoods in Boston and its western suburbs as they search for the remaining suspect, who is known as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, or the man in the white hat from marathon surveillance footage.

The dead suspect was identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, born in Russia and the brother of Dzhokhar. Anzor Tsarnaev, the father of the suspects, claims that his son who is still on the loose is a smart and accomplished young man.

"My son is a true angel," he told The Associated Press by telephone from the Russian city of Makhachkala on Friday. "Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here."

The FBI has released photos of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings and is asking for the public's help in identifying them, zeroing in on the two men on surveillance-camera footage less than three days after the deadly attack.

FBI Agent Richard DesLauriers says the photos came from surveillance cameras, photos and other evidence near the explosion sites. One man is seen wearing a light-colored baseball cap, the other a dark cap. The man in the dark cap set down a backpack at the site of one of the blasts, DesLauriers said.

Within moments of the announcement, the FBI website crashed, perhaps because of a crush of visitors.
