The suspect's uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., addressed reporters in a press conference on Friday, April 19, 2013.

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

"If I even slightly had been aware that they were involved, I'd be the first one to bring them into responsibility, as an uncle," said Ruslan Tsarni, standing outside the Montgomery Village home.

He says he's been following the Boston bombings on TV and had no idea that his brother's two sons were involved until their names were released to public as suspects.

Tsarni says he is ashamed of his nephews and hasn't spoken to that side of the family for years. He says his brother did not raise his sons to become terrorists. He says his brother is a hard working mechanic who just moved back to Russia. 

Tsarni says his brother and nephews were granted an asylum status when they came to the United States back in 2003.
