Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty of all 30 out of 30 charges for his role in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
The 21-year-old Boston bomber now awaits the penalty phase. 17 of the 30 counts against him may even call for the death penalty.
Three people — Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu and 8-year-old Martin Richard — were killed by the two bombs Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev set off during the busy race. Dozens of others were injured and maimed in the attack.
A fourth — Officer Sean Collier — was shot killed in the manhunt that followed the bombings.
Celebrities took to Twitter to express their condolences to the victims, while others called for justice. Here are some of their passionate responses:
RIP to the victims & I’m happy for the city of Boston to have at least some level of vindication

Running the Boston marathon in memory of my late Uncle John and cousin Ali in 2002, was one of the greatest experiences of my life–I fell in love with Bostonians that day. I hope that the families of those killed and those injured in the bombing of 2013 feel some kind of justice today. #BostonstrongA photo posted by Lisa Ling (@lisalingstagram) on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:47am PDT
We have all the victim’s families in our thoughts.
