The City of Boston has been locked down in the intense manhunt for the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev. The authorities have asked residents in Boston and surrounding cities and towns to stay inside their homes. Residents who live in Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont, Cambridge and the Allston-Brighton neighborhoods surrounding Boston are advised to stay indoors and not to answer to anyone except police and the FBI with proper identification.
Traffic and public transportation has been put on hold, bringing Boston to a standstill as the hunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is on the run. This has caused quite a lot of interesting photos to emerge on Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks of how a large city, like Boston looks when nobody is in the streets and there are no cars driving on them.
Earlier in the day there was a shootout between police and authorities and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He sustained serious injuries and was pronounced pronounced dead when he was at the hospital. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar are both brothers and is not clear whether the two had military training overseas. Both brothers were assimilated to US culture but it appears both are from the Chechnya, a largely Islamic state controlled by Russia.
Police in Maryland surrounded and talked with the uncle of the Tsarnev brothers, who lives in Montgomery Village. No further details about the uncle has been released except he stated, “They don’t deserve to exist” and it doesn’t appear Ruslan Tsarni had anything to do with terrorist attack.
The Boston Marathon bombing claimed 3 lives and injured 180 people.
