BOSTON (CBS) – This Memorial Day weekend, large crowds are being drawn to the memorial at Copley Square for those killed and injured in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Originally set up near the marathon finish line on Boylston Street, where three people were killed and more than 260 injured in two bomb blasts on April 15, the Copley Square memorial includes running shoes, flowers, autographed T-shirts from runners, photographs and hundreds of American flags.

Two Chechen immigrant brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, are accused of planting a pair of bombs near the marathon finish line. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a Watertown shootout with police a couple of days after the attack. His younger brother was injured in the shootout then captured after he hid in a boat stored at a Watertown resident’s home.
