WATERTOWN, Mass. - Authorities have identified the origin of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing to the Associated Press.

This comes after a long night of violence that left one of them dead, while the other remains on the run.

A law enforcement intelligence bulletin obtained by the AP identified the surviving bomb suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass.

Law enforcement officials say Tsarnaev and the other suspect, now identified by a family member as his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, have been living legally in the U.S. for at least one year.

The men are accused of killing an MIT police officer, injuring a transit officer in a firefight and allegedly threw explosive devices at police during their getaway attempt overnight.

Police have urged Boston residents to stay indoors as the search for the suspect goes on. All mass transit was also shut down.

Officials have described Tsarnaev as a "terrorist" who came here "to kill."
