(NECN) - The day after Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taken into custody, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick took some time to speak to the press outside Fenway Park.

His words were overwhelmingly filled with pride for the state, the city of Boston, and the authorities that led a day-long man hunt to bring the suspect into custody alive.

"I and, I think all of the law enforcement professionals, are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives, because we have a million questions. And those questions need to be answered," Patrick said. "There are parts of the investigation in terms of information and evidence that still needs to be run to ground. So in that sense, the investigation will continue. There's a prosecution to put together. And, of course, there are lives to be repaired and rebuilt. So there's a lot yet to come."
