The uncle of a Boston Marathon bombing suspect is urging his nephew to turn himself in.

Ruslan Tsarni of Maryland said Friday that 19-year-old Dzhozkar Tsarnaev should turn himself in to police and ask for forgiveness.

Officials say the teen's 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight in a police shootout.

The brothers came from a violence-wracked Russian region and lived together in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Tsarni says he hasn't seen them for several years.

He says the family is ashamed. He says he loves the US and respects this country.
