"Somebody clearly framed them. I don't know who exactly framed them, but they did. They framed them. And they were so cowardly that they shot the boy dead. There are policemen like that."

Twenty-six year-old Tamerlan was killed by police during an early morning shootout. Anzor Tsarvaev hopes his younger son ... 19 year-old Dzhokhar won't have the same fate.

"I'm scared for my son, for his life. They should arrest him, bring him to the police alive. Alive. And the judicial system should investigate everything, who's right and who's guilty."

He says the past days have been extremely stressful.

"I can't reach anyone (on the phone). I want to know about my children. I'm scared for my boy - that they will shoot him dead too somewhere. And then they'll just say: he had weapons. Where can kids get weapons for God's sake? They are picking them at a rubbish dump, those weapons, or what?"

Earlier on Friday, Massachusetts officials announced a state of alert - urging all residents to remain indoors as police carried out a massive manhunt.
