As the hunt for the Boston Bomber intensified, while one presumed dead( see story at the end, Governor ‘Deval Patrick of Massachusetts said residents of Boston and its neighboring communities should “stay indoors, with their doors locked.”
The manhunt is very intense.
Earlier the FBI released the Photo,Videos of the Bombers, as reported in the this site.
At a press conference, FBI special agent in charge Richard DesLauriers referred to the two men as Suspect 1 and Suspect 2 and said Suspect 2 was spotted dropping a bag before a bomb exploded at the second bomb site. The two men appear to be “associated,” DesLauriers said.
DesLauriers asked the public for their help identifying the suspects, but asked the public not to approach them. Though the men are considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said they still do not believe there is an imminent danger in the area.
A few hours later, a FBI official cited a large volume of calls as a result of the photos and DesLauriers’ appeal for help.
Details about suspects
According to a source briefed on the investigation, the suspects involved in the Boston bombing are originally from the Russian Caucasus and had moved to Kazakhstan at a young age before coming to the United States several years ago.
Another source, from federal law enforcement, also told CNN that the man being sought has been in the United States for at least a couple of years.
The man identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother, had studied at Bunker Hill Community College and wanted to become a engineer, the source said. He then took a year off to train as a boxer.
The source told CNN’s Deborah Feyerick that a posting on a social media site in his name included the comments: “I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them.”
The source added that it should not be assumed that either brother was radicalized because of their Chechen origins.”
A source close to the investigation told ABC News authorities have “good confidence” that the men in the photos perpetrated the crime. The degree of confidence, the source said, comes from a “revealing” reaction Suspect 2 had to the detonation of the first bomb, which was captured on surveillance video.”
Another Bomber is reported to be dead in a fight between th Police Officers and the suspects.
