Suspect #2 in Boston Bombings is alive and in custody

There are cheers among law enforcement in Watertown, MA as reports indicate the second suspect in Boston Marathon bombings is in custody after he was discovered holed up in a boat in a backyard. A lengthy standoff came to an end just after 8:30 Friday night a few hours after police announced that they were scaling back the hunt because they had come up empty-handed following an all-day search.

Police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar was in custody. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday in a furious attempt to escape police. The brothers are suspects in Monday's marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.

Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect went on.
