People crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon, and their friends and family watching on, had no way to know that they were about to be attacked. The jovial mood was quickly shattered as the two blasts rocked the area. Confusion, panic and a race to save lives began. As did a massive manhunt for those responsible. Nearly a week later, one suspect is dead and the other is in a hospital recovering from injuries sustained in a bloody and violent escape attempt.

From finish line to capture and beyond, here is a chronological look at photos from the Boston Marathon bombings over the past week.
