Surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect captured by police

WATERTOWN, Mass. — Just before 9 p.m. Friday, the surviving suspect of the Boston Marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was taken into custody.

The hours that led up to the capture proved to be difficult for authorities.

Police quickly moved in.

Special units were brought in. Flash bangs were sent to startle the suspect.

Dzhokhar has been hospitalized and is listed in serious condition.
