ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Boston native, Mark Wahlberg, took time out from the Monday night (April 22) premiere of his new comedy, "Pain & Gain," to talk about his hometown in the aftermath of the bombings that rocked the city and the world. The Hollywood actor was hopeful that the families of the victims could find peace and closure as the first of a series of funerals for the victims took place on Monday. The April 15 attack at the marathon's finish line killed three people and injured more than 200. The suspected bombers were also believed to have fatally shot a campus police officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Thursday night before a gun battle with police and day-long manhunt that left most of the Boston area locked down. Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was in custody at a Boston hospital on Monday after being apprehended on Friday night. He was badly injured in a gun battle with police that led to the death of his older brother Tamerlan, 26.
