Tsarnaev Brothers Were En Route to NY to ‘Party’

A resident's photo reportedly shows the car driven by suspects in the Watertown shootout. A police cruiser is also seen.


The brothers accused in the Boston Marathon bombings had plans to “party” in New York before a Friday manhunt that ended with the elder dead and the younger in cuffs.

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said brother Tamerlan and Dzokhar Tsarnaev intended on fleeing to New York City to “celebrate” the night of April 18, according to NBC-4 New York Thursday.

Instead what ensued was a day-long manhunt for Dzokhar Tsarnaev following the death of his older brother, Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout in Watertown.

Dzokhar Tsarnaev is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction in April 15 bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line which killed three and injured 180 others. He is also accused of the murder of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier. There was a service for the fallen officer at the MIT campus Thursday.

It was originally reported that the brothers were headed to New York to commit other attacks, according to the story.
