New, chilling images show Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as he's cornered and then arrested.

New photos have been released of the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

The pictures shows what a police sergeant calls "the real Boston bomber."

In sharp contrast to this image on the cover of an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine new photos show a different side to the only surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Following a police chase the day his brother was killed in a shootout with police, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev emerges from the boat where he was hiding, injured and bloodied.

He raises his shirt to show he has no weapons.

These images were captured by police photographer sergeant Sean Murphy moments before he was taken into custody.

In one, you can clearly see the laser sights of snipers on his forehead.

Boston Magazine posted the photos online, Thursday afternoon, in response to the controversial cover photo on the cover of Rolling Stone, which Murphy called "an insult" to survivors of the April 15 bombings.
