The brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings had been in the United States for years after immigrating from Russia's Chechnya region, The Boston Globe reported.

Former classmates from a prestigious Cambridge, Massachusetts, high school described the men as Americanized with no signs of violent tendencies.

They were described as athletes involved in wrestling and boxing. The younger man reportedly won a city scholarship to attend university in 2011.

Police were still searching for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, after his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed overnight.
