One Suspect Dead, One in Critical Condition, 3 Being Questioned
Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, the 19 year old object of a manhunt that locked down Boston on Friday, was captured just before 8:45 last evening. He was discovered by the owner of a boat, who noticed a strap of the boat’s cover was not attached. He looked under the edge and saw blood, and a person in a fetal position. He called 911, and authorities, who were just about to leave the area, surrounded the house. About 20 rounds of gunfire were exchanged. A robot was deployed, and removed the entire cover of the boat. Using thermal imaging, the ascertained he was not wearing explosives, and subsequently rushed into the back yard and took him into custody.
He had lost a lot of blood from what police believe were wounds from a firefight the night before where his older brother, Tamerlan, age 26, lost his life.
Authorities have reported that they are questioning three others about the bombing.
New Bedford Police Lieutenant Robert Richard said his department assisted federal investigators in executing a search warrant at a home on Carriage Drive, about 10 minutes from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, where Tsarnaev was a student.
There are many questions to be answered, and capturing the 19 year old Tsarnaev alive may give them the information they need.
