Boston Marathon suspect manhunt underway – ongoing updates
UPDATE 1:30 pm EST:
The Associated Press is reporting that the FBI is at the New Jersey home of the alleged Boston Marathon bomber’s sister. Authorities say that she has been cooperative and that there are no reports that she was involved in any of the attacks.
Speaking to reporters through the crack in her door, she responded when asked if she was okay:
“No I’m not okay – no one is okay right now,” she said. “I’m hurt for everyone who has been hurt. I’m sorry for all the people who are hurt and for all the people who lost their lives.”
She commented on her brothers, whom she said she had not seen in a few years, according to the Star Ledger in NJ.
“They were great people. I never would have expected it,” said the woman, of the suspects in Monday’s bombing. “They are smart – I don’t know what’s gotten into them.”
UPDATE 11:40 am EST:
In a press conference with reporters this morning, Ruslan Tsarni, the uncle of the alleged bombing suspects, spoke in terse words about his nephews.
“What I think was behind it: Being losers,” the men’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, told reporters from Montgomery Village, Md. He encouraged his nephew to turn himself in and said the two had brought shame on Chechens. He said that he had encouraged his own family to stay away from that part of the family.
“Of course we’re ashamed,” he said.
Additional interviews are available here and here.
UPDATE 11:00 am EST:
The UMass Dartmouth Twitter account tweeted that the school is in the process of a controlled evacuation of the campus. The school website’s home page displayed the following message:

If you’re just catching up this morning on all the activity that occurred overnight in the hunt for the remaining Boston Marathon suspect, here’s the latest since our last update early this morning:
Watertown, MA remains on lockdown after a convoy of law enforcement personnel drove into the town and surrounded the immediate area. Police have been going door to door to warn residents to remain inside, keep their doors locked and to stay away from windows.
At about 10:20am EST, Boston Police issued an alert for a 1999 Honda CRV with MA license plates; shortly thereafter, that was updated to indicate that the car had been found unoccupied and is being processed for evidence. Police also distributed an updated photo of 19 year-old alleged bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, indicating that he is armed and dangerous.
Mass transportation in and out of Boston remains virtually shut down, although air travel at Logan International Airport is said to remain operational. Highways in the Watertown area are said to remain closed.
NBC News has also compiled a helpful timeline of events.
A press briefing is scheduled to occur momentarily. More updates as they become available.

They are now talking about Islamic Jihad Union.
I guess this means that this must have been a “workplace bombing” LOL
“Doogie” Tsarnaev is just 19 years old. Consider this. If he is killed in a shoot out with police, he will be included in next year’s CDC statistics for “Gun Violence Against Children”.
How butt hurt are larry o’donnel and david sirota right now!
Separated at Birth Evil: Tamerlane Tsarnaev and…? Coincidence?
This cell phone video was evidently captured down the street from the gun battle that resulted in the death of one of the Boston bombing suspects, early this morning.
I bet a few Watertown residents today wish they had a firearm…
Just a couple of wild and crazy Islamist Chechens. You know a lot of left wing media pundits are kicking the cat and yelling at their domestic partner today.
EBL’s post link has malicious code embeded, watch out.
not on my end.
Where is the malicious code? I am not aware of that.
Borrowed from “Girl and her Gun” @ Facebook:
“You know how someone finds our you have guns and they ask something like, “Good grief, what do you need that scary black gun for or all of those high capacity “clips”?” You respond, “In case we get put on lock down because 2 Chechnyan Terrorists are being chased by the FBI”. And the laugh at you…Or something like that.”
Deny, deny, deny.
Deny Islam eventually leads to killing.
“Islam is the religion of Peace.”
Yes, but only between devout Muslims.
Islam says you may be killed if you are not sufficiently devout or an infidel.
The Islamic version of Peace may summed up as:
“I have decided not to kill you today.”
Two important points:
1. At least one option ended with your death.
2. Tomorrow is a new day.
Uncle says they have been in US for a decade but parents are still in Dagestan. So, at 26 & 19 they came here at 16 & 9 years old? Our wonderful immigration system lets in Chechyen teenagers without parents or were they illegals who got scholarships to Latin school?
The alleged bombers’ mother may have been arrested for shoplifting $1600. worth of clothing from Lord & Taylor:
Ironically, it was Lord & Taylor’s security cameras that identified the bombers.
Meanwhile, the sisters are on CBS right now denying their brothers’ culpability. The father also denies his sons’ actions… The whole family seems disingenuous.
“The whole family seems disingenuous.” Understatement?
