MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The search continues for one Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is still on the run. His brother was killed in a shootout with police early Friday morning.

The entire city of Boston is under a lockdown as police hunt for the second suspect.

A Memphis attorney shared a photo Friday of his nephew, with the suspect, celebrating their prom at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.

In the photo, Tsarnaev can be seen in a red vest and bow tie.

Neither the attorney nor his nephew are ready to talk about the connection, but Tsarnaev has been described as very likeable. He had a girlfriend at one point and a lot of friends. He was a wrestler, who was named an all-star in 2011.

The people who knew Tsarnaev and have spoken of him so far say they never saw this coming.

The 19-year-old's father says his son his innocent.

"Someone framed them. I don't know who exactly did it, but someone did," he said. "And being cowards, they shot the boy dead. There are cops like this."

The boys' uncle called them "losers" and publicly asked that Tsarnaev turn himself in.
