The FBI has refuted the Boston PD yet again this time naming 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and hist brother from the Chechnya region of Russia as the Boston Bombings suspects.
The news comes from the Associated Press and refutes earlier reports from the Boston Police who named two other suspects that were of Middle-Eastern decent.
A massive law enforcement operation is underway as a manhunt ensues to locate the suspect and Massachusetts remains under lock down after a gunfight with explosions occured which claimed the life of at least one officer and one of the suspects occurred in the early hours of the morning.
According to reports, both men have been in America for at least a year and believed to have recieved military training.
Compare this to the FBI’s photo:
Dzhokar’s vk profile page, which shows his last activity at 5:04 am today via mobile phone, lists him as having an “Islam” worldview.
Oddly, the profile is new with the oldest post being on March 13th and only 4 post having been made since being created.
Since being out has his profile page, it has received 100′s of anti-islamic hate messages.
The Chechnya region of Russia has a long history of Al Qaeda operations and numerous Chechnyan freedom fighter’s are reported to be fighting alongside factions of Al Qaeda in Syria to oust President Assad.
Earlier Boston PD announced they had cornered Dzhokar after an all out gun fight complete with explosives turned into an on foot pursuit.
During the gun fight the Boston Police Department reported they wounded Dzhokar’s brother and took him into custody.
Dzhokhar’s brother was then transported to a local hospital and was reported to have died about 45 minutes later.
Since then hundreds of police officer’s and military personnel have been deployed to Waretown which has been placed under a complete lockdown with a 20 block radius being cordonned of.
According to the Boston PD scanner, Dzhokar was cornered inside a warehouse a little after 3 AM when police were told to stand down and wait for swat assets to arrive.
Sniper were told not to engage and officers on the scene were told the suspect would be engagd after day-break.
Since those reports, swat teams have gone door -to-door removing residents from their homes and searching their premises.
A complete report of the events earlier in the morning can be in found here.
More on the suspect Via Slate:
The Associated Press reports that the two Boston Marathon bominb suspects in photos released last night have been identified. One is dead; the other is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, a resident of Cambridge, Mass. who immigrated legally to the United States.
And the great googling commences, made easlier by the suspect’s uncommon name. (Dzhokhar is a common Chechen name. If the etymology holds up, the suspect is very literally Caucausian.) A “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev” was awarded a student scholarship by Cambridge in 2011. That year someone with this name was a wrestling “all-star” in the Cambridge Rindge and Greater Boston League. No, Brian Ross, there is no “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev” in the rolodex of Tea Party Patriots.
UPDATE: A “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev” has a profile on VKontakte, Russia’s answer to Facebook, and his wall looks… much like the walls of Americans with the names of terror suspects, but with more Chechen jokes. Avaaz’s Ben Wikler pulls a photo from the page:
