Boston Changed After 2nd Bombing Suspect Captured

    (NECN: Justin Michaels, Watertown, Mass.) - A quiet Watertown neighborhood is still a crime scene Saturday morning.  Friday night, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taken into custody, ending the search that put the area into lockdown.

    Police stormed the backyard at 67 Franklin St. in Watertown where several shots were fired. It turns out the surviving suspected terrorist was in a boat in the backyard. The boat had a torn cover, giving the suspect access and a place to shelter.

    The first notion the suspect was in the boat was when the resident held back the tarp and saw a man covered in blood. That person called 9-1-1. Police also saw the suspect using an infrared camera on the state police helicopter.

    All this was the culmination of many scary hours and a tireless manhunt.  At 8:40 p.m. Tsarnaev was in custody and at 9:30 p.m. the public heard from law enforcement, Gov. Deval Patrick and Mayor Tom Menino.

    In addition to the three who were killed Monday, 26-year-old Sean Collier died after responding to a report of a disturbance as an MIT police officer. Also, wounded in the hospital is 33-year-old Richard Donohue who was shot and originally was in critical condition, but Saturday morning he was upgraded to stable condition.
