Boston Bombers' Last Stand: New pictures emerge of dramatic street shootout

Incredible new photographs have revealed the dramatic gun battle which broke out between police and the suspected Boston bombers in a residential street, leaving one brother dead.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and his brother Tamerlan, 26, are seen running to a car for more supplies before hauling out a pressure cooker bomb they then detonated, filling the street with smoke.

I saw his chair pic on twitter. I was following his tweets all

night. It was intense. I wish they could enhance them so we could look at their faces. I can't tell the cops from the criminals.

Yeah you can't make out

Yeah you can't make out faces. But you can see that this guy had as good a view of them and what they did as anybody could have. And you can see that whoever it is, one of them is aiming a gun at the police.

he posted the chair picture on twitter

I saw the hole through the chair picture on the night of. It was posted on twitter along with video of the event. Perhaps these are frames from the video or maybe the video was taken by one of his neighbors. It was dark so you couldn't see too much detail. You could hear lots of gunfire and and a bright explosion as I recall...dark shadows of people.

might want to save these images, now.

andrew kitzenberg, who is said to have taken the photographs, removed them from his blog and they might have a tendency to dissappear.
