Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the second suspect behind the Boston Marathon bombing has been captured after 24 hours of face off with law enforcement forces.
Tsarnaev, 19, was captured last night in Watertown, Massachusetts, hiding inside a boat that sat in a driveway belonging to a man called David Henneberry, who was the one who discovered the boy.
According to David, he became suspicious when he noticed that the boat’s tarp was tapping in the wind. On further investigation, he found out that the tarp was cut and there were blood stains on the boat.
Investigating even further, he found Tsarnaev curled inside the boat, covered in blood. ‘He basically stuck his head under the tarp (and) noticed a pool of blood,’ David’s stepson told CNN.
Cops say that he gave himself up after some minutes of shootout as he was ‘weakened by loss of blood.’ He was not read his Miranda rights but authorities invoked public safety exceptions to question him immediately and extensively in order to gather info about other potential bombs or accomplices.
Tsarnaev is currently battling for his life at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston. His elder brother Tamerlan was earlier killed during a shootout with police on Friday morning.
