After Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bomb attack of the Boston Marathon, regained some consciousness after being heavily sedated on surgery, he realized he had something important to share regarding the sad event.
Grabbing a pencil and paper, wrote: “bag, I saw the man, looked straight at me.” After waking up completely, Bauman described the suspect to the FBI: “he was wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a sweatshirt with a hoodie. ” Bauman said that the suspect stared at him as he placed the bag on the finish line, the bag with the bomb that took Bauman’s legs.
Immediately, the authorities went in search of the suspects, accused of killing three people and injuring other 176. After a shooting and the murder of a police officer on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, the police managed to track down and kill one of the two suspects in the outskirts of Boston. This would have been the “suspect 1” (as described by Bauman), identified hours later as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26. The other guy in the photo, the “suspect 2” has escaped and has been identified as Dzhokhar A Tsarnaev of 19 years old (the one with the white cap).
According to police, the suspects, which would be two brothers from Chechnya and both U.S. legal residents, stole a car and took the driver hostage for half an hour and then left him at a gas station. Police followed the suspects then to Watertown, a small residential town about 14 miles from Boston. There, in a violent confrontation, the officers and the suspects exchanged multiple shots. The persecuted even launched explosives.
The officers managed to corral one of the men, who during the operation was wounded and taken to hospital, where he died (suspect 1). The “suspect 2” ran through a residential area and close to a shopping center.
It is known that the police have set up a security perimeter around a house in which “suspect 2” is believed to be. The house located on Quimby Street, a residential area in a quiet town of 32,248 inhabitants, is completely surrounded by heavily armed police.
Near the house, there is a tank and also a helicopter flies over the house constantly.
