From The Boston Globe:
WATERTOWN — The man that police believe is responsible for placing the bombs that struck the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing 3 and injuring more than 170, is in custody after a standoff lasting nearly two hours in Watertown.
Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody shortly before 8:45 p.m.
“They got him. He’s in custody,” a state trooper told the media gathered in the neighborhood. A crowd of onlookers broke into applause.
Tsarnaev had been pinned down in a boat in the backyard of a home in Watertown, just outside the city. He was rushed to a local hospital.
Officers are acting with caution because they remain concerned that the suspect might be wearing a suicide bomb vest, the source said.
