A few days after the bombing on April 18, 2013 the FBI released the images of Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan, the brothers killed an MIT officer before hijacking a man’s car and kidnapping him. The man later escaped when the brothers had stopped at a gas station to get food. After, the brothers sent in a panic after the kidnapping victim had escaped, stole another car and headed down neighborhood roads before having a shootout with police in Watertown, severely injuring two officers and the older brother Tamerlan. Tamerlan was shot multiple times before Dzhokhar took one of the stolen vehicles and ran him over in effort to escape. Tamerlan died sometime after.
On April 19, 2013 Dzhokhar was wanted, the residents of Watertown and surrounding cities were put on lock-down and told to stay inside until Dzhokhar was found. At approximately 6:00 p.m. a Watertown resident discovered Dzhokhar hiding in a boat in his backyard.
Dzhokhar then was shot through the boat by police and arrested.
On April 8, 2015, Dzhokhar was convicted of thirty charges, including use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death. Dzhokhar was later sentenced to death.
