FBI questions bombing suspects' sister in NJ

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, NYPD and local law enforcement have been talking to a woman in West New York, N.J., after she identified herself as the sister of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.

UPDATE: SUSPECT CAPTURED

She lives with her husband and at least one child in a building on Buchanan Place in Hudson County, directly across the Hudson River from New York City.

Authorities removed a computer from the home, NorthJersey.com reported. Police said she was cooperating with authorities.

WNYC identified the woman as Alina Tsarnaeva.

Earlier in the morning she spoke to NorthJersey.com from the door of the second floor apartment but refused to give her name.

She said she was shocked by the bombings and surprised her brothers could have been involved.

She called them "loving" but said she had not spoken to the brothers in years.

    Prosecutors in Arizona say they will not file charges in the death of a firearms instructor who was showing a vacationing 9-year-old New Jersey girl how to fire a fully automatic Uzi machine gun. The gun recoiled and Charles Vacca was shot in the head. Shooting ranges with high-powered weapons have become popular attractions in Hawaii and Las Vegas. They draw bachelor parties, newlyweds and tourists from countries that bar citizens from many types of guns.
