Suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s fellow high school alumni include some very high-profile names.

Tsarnaev attended Cambridge Rindge & Latin School 20 years after Oscar-winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck graduated from the same school. Former NBA great Patrick Ewing also attended Cambridge Rindge, as well as Academy Award-winning actor Walter Brennan.

Affleck tweeted Monday after the bombings, “Such a senseless and tragic day. My family and I send our love to our beloved and resilient Boston.”

Tsarnaev is considered “armed and extremely dangerous” following the twin bombings at the finish line at the Boston Marathon Monday. Thursday night, Dzhokhar and his older brother Tamerlan reportedly held up a gas station, then hijacked an SUV.

A police shootout ensued, killing Tamerlan and a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer.

Boston police have locked down the entire city of Boston and surrounding suburbs in the manhunt for Dzhokhar.
