BOSTON - The finish of the Boston Marathon, tragically turned into the start of a five-day marathon of terror.
Two explosions, killing three people, including 8-year-old Martin Richard, and injuring 180 others.
After three days of studying surveillance video, the FBI released images of the men they said were responsible for the bombing.

We now know them as Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
They allegedly carjacked a man Thursday, leaving him unharmed at a Cambridge gas station.
Police say a short time later they wounded one lawman and killed another, Officer Sean Collier, on the MIT campus.
Police caught up with them in nearby Watertown. The damage left from the ensuing shootout was everywhere.
Mike Doucette saw the whole thing. "The younger brother that got away he ran out of bullets in the gunfight with the cop, pulled a bomb out, threw it at the cop and exploded in mid-air"
Mike says the older brother was wounded, his younger brother managed to get back in the car.
"They had him at gunpoint on the ground and told him don't move, don't move, he was still moving and then out of the middle of nowhere the SUV came speeding up the street about 70 miles per hour probably, aimed right for the cops, the cops jumped, and he ran over his brother dragged him a good 30 feet."
With his older brother dead, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev got away.
Police put Boston and its suburbs on lockdown, searching door to door.
"We believe this to be a terrorist, we believe this to be a man who has come here to kill people," Ed Davis, a local police chief said.
Then Friday night, a Watertown resident noticed blood on his boat parked in the driveway.
He looked inside and saw the suspect, police took thermal images of him inside.
Police gathered force, and moved in.
By the end of the night Dzhokhar was in custody.
Maura Crowley lives in the neighborhood. "I'm so relieved, I just feel so bad for all the victims of this tragedy."
Five days of terror were finally over.
But even though Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in custody, so many questions remain.
Why the bloodshed? Why the deaths? Why the terror?
