NEW DEVELOPMENTS

Boston-area residents are being urged to stay inside and lock their doors as state police go door to door in their search for Suspect No. 2, on the loose after his brother was killed in a getaway attempt. An uncle pleaded on live television: "If you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness." Connecticut State Police say the at-large suspect could be traveling in a green Honda Civic.

HOW THE SITUATION UNFOLDED

Surveillance tape late Thursday showed Suspect No. 2 during a robbery of a convenience store. A responding police officer was fatally shot. The two suspects carjacked a man, released him and got involved in a chase with police that resulted in explosives being thrown from the suspects' car and an exchange of gunfire, authorities say. Suspect No. 1 died at a hospital.

THE SUSPECTS

Law enforcement officials and family members have identified them as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, ethnic Chechen brothers who had lived in Dagestan in southern Russia. They had been in the U.S. for about a decade and lived near Boston, an uncle said. Dzhokhar, for whom police are searching, is a 19-year-old student at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. Tamerlan was a 26-year-old boxer. Their motive remains unclear.
