Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the man wanted in connection with the Boston marathon bombings has been captured. He had escaped police when his brother was captured and died Thursday. An extensive manhunt was launched but failed to locate him. After a fast moving day the end came unexpectedly.
A man living in Watertown spotted a trail of blood in his back yard. He followed this to a covered boat at his property. Lifting the cover there was the suspected bomber, injured but alive.
The resident notified police who zoomed in on the area. Police moved in as Dzhokhar was about to leave the boat. Gun fire was exchanged before the injured man was captured. He was taken to the Beth Israel Deaconess hospital where his condition is serious. He is under heavy guard.
The police and FBI will want the suspect to be kept alive, at least long enough to be questioned. There are many unanswered questions. Were these two men the perpetrators of the Boston bombings? If so why? Did they act alone? Are they part of a wider terrorist ring?
President Obama addressed the nation. He thanked the police and emergency services for their "professional" work. He also said there were many questions needing answers.
In Boston and across America people took to the streets to celebrate the capture of Dzhokhar.
