BOSTON - UPDATE: Second suspect in Boston Marathon bombing in custody

The father of the suspected Boston Marathon bomber asked his own son to give up peacefully on Friday.

Anzor Tsarnaev spoke to ABC News from his home in Russia , and talked about the massive search for his son, 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev.

Anzor Tsarnaev's older son, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a shootout with police late Thursday night.

The father said he spoke with his sons earlier in the week and told ABC News, "We talked about the bombing. I was worried about them."

His sons reportedly told him, ""Everything is good, Daddy. Everything is very good."

Anzor Tsarnaev insisted during his interview with ABC News that his sons were innocent, and warned authorities that if they kill his son "all hell would break loose."

"If they kill my second child, I will know that it is an inside job, a hit job. The police are to blame," Anzor Tsarnaev said.

The father also has two daughters who live in the United States who are 22 and 23 years old.
