The two suspects involved in Monday’s marathon bombings in Boston were brothers and hailed from overseas, various media reported Friday.

Fox News said Suspect No. 2 who wore the white hat at the Boston Marathon bombings has been identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. He hails from Chechnya and had been in the United States for a little more than a year, Bill Hemmer from Fox News reported.

The first suspect, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, also spelled Tamerlin, was killed in a shootout with police.

CNN and Fox News reported that the two suspects were brothers.

CNN said the brothers spent time in Kazakhstan before arriving in the U.S.

Police are searching the streets of Watertown for him. They’re currently on the streets and have cordoned off a package they suspected to be a bomb.

Meanwhile, police are combing the streets of Boston’s suburbs — and residents, apparently, are advised to stay inside.
