Dzhokhar Tsarnaev caught

Police captured the second of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings tonight, after a lengthy pursuit and standoff that left one of the two alleged bombers dead. The second, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has been apprehended alive.

Law enforcement circled a Watertown, Mass. home Friday night, pinning down suspected Boston Marathon bomber in a boat housed in the back yard. After being placed in custody, Tsarnaev was rushed to a local hospital for wounds sustained at an unknown point in the search.

Keep an eye on this post for further details.

UPDATE: Massachusetts State Police have told the Times that Tsarnaev is “in serious if not critical condition,” and has lost a lot of blood. He has been rushed to Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center following his capture.

UPDATE 2: President Obama addressed the nation just a few moments ago, heralding the triumphant efforts of law enforcement in pursuing and apprehending Tsarnaev.

"Tonight, our nation is in debt to the people of Boston and the people of Massachusetts."

Obama conceded that there are still many “unanswered questions” in the case, but remained confident that whatever their motives, those behind the attack “failed, because as Americans, we refuse to be terrorized.”
