Police in Boston have released a new photo showing the man believed to be a suspect in the marathon bombings.

In the new photo, he's wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt pulled up on his head. The photo was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston.

AP sources identify the man as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is the bombing suspect who is still alive. The other bombing suspect was killed overnight in an exchange of gunfire with police.

The sources also say both men are from a region of Russia near Chechnya, and have lived in the U.S. for at least a year.
