Another uncle of the dead bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, told The Journal News Friday that his nephew phoned him at 7 p.m. Thursday night, for the first time in about two years.
The call came just a couple of hours before Tsarnaev was shot dead.
“He said, ‘I love you and forgive me,’” said the uncle, Alvi Tsarnaev, who lives in Montgomery Village, Md.

A law enforcement intelligence bulletin obtained by the AP identified the surviving suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass.
The two men are suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer on campus in Cambridge late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint and later releasing its driver unharmed.
The suspects’ clashes with police began only a few hours after the FBI released photos and videos of the two young men, who were seen carrying backpacks as they mingled among revelers at Monday’s Boston Marathon. The bombings on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180 others, and authorities revealed the images to enlist the public’s help finding the suspects.
