BOSTON (AP) - A police photographer, furious with a Rolling Stone cover photo he says glamorizes the surviving Boston Marathon suspect, has released gritty images from the day he was captured.

The photos released to Boston Magazine on Thursday by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy show a downcast, disheveled Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) with the red dot of sniper's rifle laser sight on his forehead.

He says his photos show the "real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine." The pictures were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard.

A state police spokesman said the agency didn't authorize release of the photos to Boston Magazine and will not release them to other media.
