Cuomo not briefed about Tsarnaevs' alleged NYC plan

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The news that Boston bombing suspects Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev had allegedly spontaneously decided to come to Times Square and detonate their remaining bombs apparently caught Gov. Andrew Cuomo off guard when reporters asked him about it Thursday.

"Let me see what the mayor and commissioner have to say about it and then I will comment," he said.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Commissioner Ray Kelly said they learned about the bombing suspects' plans from the FBI Wednesday night. They called a news conference shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday, but the governor was not notified about the latest developments in the investigation.

When asked if he had spoken to the mayor of the commissioner, Cuomo said he hadn't.
