Tsarnaev Friend: 'He Asked Me To Potentially Borrow The Gun'Play
In the trial of admitted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Tuesday, jurors heard from Stephen Silva, one of Dzhokhar's high school friends.
Silva testified that he gave Tsarnaev a 9 mm handgun, which was later used to kill MIT police officer Sean Collier, carjack a motorist in Cambridge and send a volley of shots at police in Watertown in the wake of the marathon attacks.
