The explosions started a manhunt and investigation that quickly identified two suspects as the bombers. The two were later found to be brothers, Dzhokar Tsarnaev (19) and Tamerlan Tsarnaev (26).In less than one week's time, the Massachusetts State Police, Boston Police, FBI and local law enforcement from around the Commonwealth were able to apprehend the suspects after a manhunt that shut down the City of Boston and surrounding communities.

Bringing the two suspects into custody did not come without casualty, with one MIT police officer wounded fatally and a MBTA officer hospitalized.
