A flurry of applause at the scene of a standoff between police and Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev signaled his capture Friday night.
After a nearly two-hour standoff in a Watertown neighborhood, Tsarnaev was taken from the scene by ambulance to a local hospital.
The standoff began just before 7 p.m., minutes after Massachusetts State Police announced that they had completed their door-to-door search in Watertown without locating Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
WBZ-TV’s Jim Armstrong was in the area of Franklin Street when he heard what he described as 15-20 seconds of rapid gunfire. He was forced to take cover, and was quickly moved back to safety by police.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino confirmed to WBZ-TV that police had surrounded the bombing suspect inside a boat in the backyard of a home on Franklin Street. Sources say that a resident called police to report finding blood by the boat. (Read More)
I hope he gets what’s coming to him.
Update: I’ve had the TV on all evening and they’ve been showing people in the Boston area lining the streets and waving American flags. That’s nice to see.
