On Thursday, Boston Magazine published photographs of the surviving marathon bombing suspect emerging from his hiding place on April 19, when he was captured by police.

The photographs, taken by Sgt. Sean Murphy, a Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer, show Dzhokhar Tsarnaev getting out of a boat with a sniper’s laser trained on his forehead.

Murphy was outraged by the recent Rolling Stone cover, according to Boston Magazine, and he said he wanted to send a different message.

John Wolfson, the Editor of Boston Magazine, later tweeted that Murphy had been relieved of duty pending a hearing next week. NBC News couldn’t independently verify the account. Full story.
