MOSCOW, April 18 (RAPSI) - The suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing may be from a region bordering Russia's Republic of Chechnya and had been living in the US for approximately one year , the AP reported Friday citing sources.

The surviving suspect has been identified by the AP’s source as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass, according to a Tweet by the news agency.

A second suspect was reported dead earlier Friday. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis confirmed the death of one of the suspects implicated in Monday's Boston Marathon bombing which left three dead and upwards of 176 via his Twitter account Friday, stating simply: "One suspect dead. One at large. Armed and dangerous. White hat suspect at large"

Two blasts occurred at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, America’s most prestigious 26.2 mile race which boasts such stringent entry requirements that only the best of the best are entitled to compete. Three people have been confirmed dead, including an eight-year-old boy present to cheer on his father. The Boston Police Department tweeted in its latest casualty update Tuesday that 176 injured have gone to local hospitals. A large-scale, multi-agency investigation is presently underway.
