The Chicago Police Department has just announced they have been invited to join the investigation into the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Chicago Police are sending five detectives and one sergeant to work with Boston Police at the request of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis. The Chicago police delegation will help out in the bombing investigation and investigation into bombing suspects: Chechen brothers, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev and 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The two bombing suspects were in a police shoot out this morning in the Boston area with Tamerlan losing his life and Dzhokhar on the loose in Boston. A massive manhunt is underway at this time for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said “What happened in Boston this week has affected all of us and we must stand together in the face of these cowardly acts.” “Chicago stands in solidarity with Boston and we are ready to help in any way we can.”
The Chicago delegation will head to Boston later today.
