Boston Marathon (Boston, Massachusetts) Casualty List
Count: 4 (on April 15, 2013 and on April 18, 2013)
On Monday, April 15, 2013, at about 2:49 PM EST, in a domestic act of terror, two Americans (19-year-old and 26-year-old brothers), whose family had immigrated as refugees from Russia in 2002, launched a well planned and coordinated improvised explosives bombing assault on spectators watching runners near the finish line at the annual Boston Marathon world class event in Boston, Massachusetts. The bombing involved dual explosions, about 13 seconds and 210 yards apart, amid two separate crowds of spectators. The dual explosion killed three by-standers and injured over 180 other people watching the race. The assault marked the first successful terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the events of September 11, 2001.
On Thursday, April 18, 2013, at about 10:40 PM EST, while on the run from law enforcement authorities, the two alleged suspect brothers ambushed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, campus police officer in his law enforcement vehicle in an apparent multiple gunshot execution.
