There was chaos and confusion last night in Boston, involving a police officer who was shot and killed at MIT, a carjacking nearby, the death of one Boston Marathon Bombing suspect, and a manhunt for the second. Here's what we know . . .
(Update: The latest reports say the suspects were brothers of Chechen origin. Suspect number one . . . the one in the FBI photos with the black hat, who was killed last night . . . was the older brother. He was 26, studied engineering at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, and his name was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, born in Russia. Tsarnaev is prounounced Sar-nay-ev. The younger brother who's on the loose is 19, and was born in Kyrgyzstan. His name is Dzhokhar, pronounced Jah-har. They've both been in the country for a while.)
