2013: The day after they were identified as suspects in the April 15 bombing of the Boston Marathon, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev engage police in an early morning shootout in Watertown, Mass., after allegedly killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus police officer. Tamerlan Tsarnaev (right) died during the shootout while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev evaded capture for most of the day. He was eventually found hiding in a boat stored in a backyard and taken into custody after a tense standoff. Dzhokhar was charged on April 22, while still confined to a hospital bed with injuries suffered during the shootout, with use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death.
