A daylong manhunt in Massachusetts has ended with the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings being taken into custody.
Gunfire was reported in a neighborhood in the Boston suburb of Watertown just after 6 p.m. Friday.
Following a shoot out, investigators confirmed that Dzhokar Tsarnaev was found in a boat stored in a Boston neighborhood.
According to police, he has been hospitalized and is in serious condition.
Authorities had spent the day searching for 19-year-old college student Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The Chechen immigrant and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev are believed to be suspects in the Monday afternoon terrorist attack that killed three people and left 180 injured.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in an overnight shootout with authorities but Dzhokhar Tsarnaev escaped.
Authorities are still trying to determine a motive in the bombings.
