Boston Bombers’ Maryland Connection

An uncle of the suspects says his brother lives in Montgomery County.

A man claiming to be the uncle of the two alleged Boston Marathon bombers gave an interview to a CBS News affiliate this morning saying that his brother lives in suburban Washington, in Montgomery County. It wasn’t clear whether this Maryland man is the suspected bombers’ father or another uncle.

Public records indicate a potential relative of the suspected bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, living at a house in Montgomery County. Calls to the house by The Washingtonian were not answered.

Dead Drop is not reporting the address. Police have requested that reporters and the public not report the tactical positions of law enforcement officers hunting for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who remains at large and is considered dangerous. His brother, Tamerlan, was killed earlier this morning in a shootout with police.

A DC local news helicopter appears to be hovering over a house in suburban Maryland, and a photo sent by a reporter on the scene shows police blocking off the street leading to the house.
