Matanov formerly attended Quincy College

Posted: Updated:
QUINCY, Mass. (WHDH) - A man accused of being friends with the alleged Boston Marathon bombers and obstructing the police investigation was also a student at Quincy College for a short time.

Khairullozhon Matanov, 23, was a computer studies student at the college for the Summer II Term in July and August 2013.

Students at the college said they are shocked a man tied to the tragic bombing could have been sitting next to them in class.

“I think it’s crazy. I just don’t know some people I guess. You don’t know how close some things can be to you,” Justin Halloran said.

Xavier Romero woke up today stunned of the developments, he says his friends know with Matanov.

“They probably didn’t know, that’s how it is. Quiet people just, you don’t know what happens,” Romero said.

Many students at the college said it's creepy that they likely walked down the highway with a man connected to the bombing.

Matanov's roommate in Quincy is reportedly still enrolled at the college.
