More information about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the two brothers authorities believe killed three and left more than 170 people injured by detonating two homemade bombs during Monday’s Boston Marathon, is coming out.

As Boston Police and the FBI continue the manhunt for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after an early morning shootout Friday that left his brother Tamerlan dead, we’re learning more about the two men.

Dzhokhar was widely considered by friends a reserved but nice guy. According to BuzzFeed, he attended Cambridge Rindge and Latin School and was commonly called “Jahar” — because Dzhokhar was too difficult to pronounce. He was born in Kyrgyzstan, while his brother Tamerlan was born in Russia.

Friends said they were shocked to learn that he was involved with the Boston bombing.

Dzhokhar reportedly received a $2,500 scholarship to attend college and was listed as an all-star wrestler for the school in 2011.

Robin Young, host of the PRI radio show “Here and Now,” tweeted out the below picture of Dzhokhar posing with her nephew at graduation.
