The Associated Press is reporting that the surviving of the 2 Boston bombing suspects is a 19-year-old named Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev. The man is said to be born in Kyrgyzstan, and grown up in the southern part of Russian, near Chechnya. He reportedly has a Massachusetts driver's license and has been in this country for years.

Dzhokhar reportedly attended a public school in Cambridge - Cambridge Rindge and Latin - where he was an award-winning wrestler. Boston websites have listed him on a list of Cambridge Scholarship recipients. 

The second suspect has been identified as his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26. He was killed in a shootout early Friday morning.

Reporters have reached out to the family of the two boys. Their uncle who lives in Maryland, spoke to the press early Friday, and the Associated Press reached the boys' father, who still lives in Russia, in a town called Makhachkala. Dzhokhar's father described his son as a smart and accomplished young man who had dreams of being a doctor. The family expected him home on holidays.

A feed on Twitter appears to have belonged to the younger Tsarnaev, as well as the following images, reportedly from Tsarnaev's page on a Russian social media site (below):
