The Associated Press is reporting that the surviving Boston bomb suspect has been identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass.

The two suspects are brothers from a Russian region near Chechnya, according to CBC news. The other man, who is now being identified by reports as Tamerlan Tzarnaev, has died as a manhunt continues in the early morning of violence.

Overnight, the two suspects identified on Thursday afternoon for the Boston Marathon bombing were involved in a night of violence that left an MIT officer dead, another transit officer injured. A manhunt was underway for the second suspect, believed to be Tsarnaev.

This is a developing story.

The suspects were identified to The Associated Press as coming from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars. A law enforcement intelligence bulletin obtained by the AP identified the surviving bomb suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old who had been living in Cambridge, Mass.

Two law enforcement officials told the AP that Tsarnaev and the other suspect, who was not immediately identified, had been living legally in the U.S. for at least one year.
