The second Boston Marathon bombing suspect who eluded authorities for five days in a manhunt that left another officer dead has been taken into custody, the Boston Police Department announced via Twitter and Facebook.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taken into custody shortly before 9 p.m. Friday, following an intense 24 hours that began late Thursday after authorities first confronted when Dzhokar and his brother.

On the Boston PD's Facebook page at 9:01 p.m., the agency shared this update: "CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody."

Shortly before the announcement, residents reported hearing gunshots and seeing police race to the backyard of a Watertown property, where officers located the 19-year-old native Chechen.

Police sources told the Boston Globe officers had removed the cover from a boat where Tsarnaev was hiding.

God bless all of the Officers on the hunt for these goblins!
We can't bring back those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but I know that they'd be proud, that Boston can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that one goblin is taking a dirt nap and the other is in custody.
I know that this mutt has his due process, but if I were king he'd be off to GITMO to assertain if there are more of them around.
Just say'in
Most respectfully

Outstanding job! Tonight we should all raise a pint and honor our fallen brother Sean Collier. Honor the wounded and innocent victims of this senseless act. Raise a pint for the tireless and outstanding effort put in by all of our law enforcement brothers and sisters in the Boston area to bring this case to a close. Your work reaffirms what some try and diminish, that this is still the greatest nation on earth. Your hard work and the response of the public in the Boston area is like a big middle finger to others who would seek to do us harm. Well done and Thank You!

Shot him and now to spend thousand to save his life is just crazy. It appears that all the taxpayers money spent, which has been extreem, can and will not protect us. I can not believe this is now taking place here in the USA. What next car bombings.?
God Bless all that got hurt and the rest of the world.
