Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev arrested and father,Anzor,is confirmed to be on route to U.S.

Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been arretsed following an extensive manhunt that ended in the Boston suburb of Watertown.

Law enforcement units from around the country were involved in the search.

The crowd around the standoff scene in Watertown burst into cheers as it became clear that Tsarnaev had been taken into custody following reports that a negotiator was on site.
He will be transported to Mount Auburn Hospital, the same facility where a police officer shot in a standoff with the Tsarnaevs is recovering, the Boston Globe reports.

Tsarnaev is listed in “serious, if not critical condition” after suffering gunshot wounds to the neck and leg.

Despite earlier reports to the contrary, arresting officers will not read Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, citing a so-called "public safety exception."

The Department of Justice has listed Tsarnaev as a “high value detainee” on their website.

Tsarnaev’s father, Anzor, is confirmed to be en route to the United States, according to ABC News. In an interview with Russian media prior to his son's arrest, Anzor Tsarnaev was adamant about both his sons’ innocence.

“Somebody might have set them up. I don’t know who and, because of their cowardice, they killed the boy,” he said.


Tsarnaev, 19, and his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, are suspected of detonating two improvised explosives during the Boston Marathon on Monday, after which a manhunt began that led to a shootout with law enforcement agents, a stolen car and finally Dzhokhar's hideout in a boat parked on a lawn in suburban Watertown.

The older Tsarnaev brother was pronounced dead by law enforcement early Friday, shortly after both men were named as suspects in Monday’s blast. Police believe the brothers reportedly shot and killed a police officer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), later identified as 26-year-old Sean Collier.
Local and national law enforcement agencies in the United States — including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — descended on New England this week to help the Boston Police Department in their probe of the marathon tragedy, which US President Barack Obama declared in the aftermath as an act of terrorism. But despite receiving assistance from multiple branches of the Justice Department and agencies as far away as the NYPD and Israeli police, the FBI did not go public with any leads until Thursday afternoon.
At around 5pm Thursday (21:00 GMT), FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers presented the media with surveillance camera footage of two men — originally identified as only “Suspect One” and “Suspect Two” — and said they were believed responsible for Monday’s blast, and should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
As afternoon turned to evening, new photos taken by marathon witnesses quickly circulated of the suspects, and by sundown authorities connected the Tsarnaev brothers to a series of criminal activities committed in the Boston area, including the terrorist attack.
Across the world, eyes were focused on the greater Boston region into Friday morning as local news stations followed-up feverishly on what became an increasingly chaotic manhunt for both men. Police responded by shutting down much of the vicinity, ordering residents to stay inside with locked doors and urged to avoid interacting with anyone other than law enforcement.

Transportation company Amtrak suspended rail service going in and out of both Boston and nearby Providence, Rhode Island, and local public services including rail, bus and taxi all stopped servicing the area.

In all, roughly 1 million residents in New England were told to stay indoors until the lockdown was lifted on Friday evening.

Authorities said that the brothers fired dozens of rounds at police, critically injuring another officer, during which Tamerlan Tsarnaev was injured.

He was reportedly apprehended by police and later pronounced dead.

According to some sources, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev fled the scene in a vehicle, driving over his brother’s body in the process.

As the police escalated their manhunt for the surviving Tsarnaev, authorities warned of multiple explosives on the scene across Watertown and called in a bomb squad to assist in the investigation.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
