New Images: Boston Bombing Suspects Battle Police

ABC News(WATERTOWN, Mass.) -- As Boylston Street, the site of last week’s deadly Boston Marathon bombings, limped back to normalcy Wednesday, new images surfaced online from the night when brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly opened fire on authorities on a Watertown, Mass., street.

According to Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau, the final hours of the Boston terror spree — which left four dead and hundreds injured — began when the Tsarnaevs realized they were being followed by a Watertown police officer.

The two allegedly stopped their car to shoot at the officer and heave a pressure cooker bomb at him, Deveau said.

The manhunt, which locked down the city of Boston for nearly 24 hours, ended when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving brother, was taken into custody after being found hiding in a boat.

The images were taken by Andrew Kitzenberg with his smartphone as he watched the shootout unfold from his third-floor bedroom window early Friday morning.

“I was in my living room working on my computer when I heard multiple ‘pops’ coming from outside,” Kitzenberg says on his website. “At that point, I had no idea that I was about to become an eye witness to the biggest news story in the country.”
