Boston Bombings: One Suspect Killed, Another at Large - Celebrities React
One of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, has been killed Friday (April 19) and his brother and accomplice, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is believed to be at large in the area.
The two brothers “robbed a 7-Eleven, shot a police officer to death, carjacked an SUV and hurled explosives in an extraordinary firefight with law enforcement,” according to NBC News.
“My son is a true angel,” the father of the suspects told People. “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.”
Residents of Boston and surrounding cities are urged to stay indoors and businesses have been advised to stay closed.

Alec Baldwin: “The effects of terrorism on our society will get worse before [they] get better. The presence of police as a paramilitary force in our society will now grow to new levels. Cameras, bomb-sniffing dogs, checkpoints, etc, will expand exponentially the notion that someone capable of brutal, cold-blooded and random killing walks openly in public will further shape our lives. [The] cost of security measures will skyrocket. Further diverting funds meant for other, equally important goals, in American society. Tweeting a simple observation re our society always yields 1 benefit. I can block all right-wing idiots that come out of their foxholes. The bravery and effectiveness of police is a blessing. Their presence is welcome, in times like these. Yet it highlights something.”
