BOSTON (AP) — Two high school friends of the at-large suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings are appealing to him not to hurt anyone else and to turn himself in.

Ashraful Rahman and Essah Chisholm attended Cambridge Rindge & Latin School with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH'-kahr tsarh-NY'-ev).

Rahman tells The Associated Press in a Facebook message that they want Tsarnaev to stop and appeals to him to "not kill himself or do any further harm to anyone." He describes him as a hardworking wrestler who was calm and chill, someone who never did anything wrong. He says he wants to know why he did all this and wants him to reach out to his friends.

Chisholm tells the AP in a Facebook message that he wants to tell his friend not to kill himself or hurt anyone.
