After a week of terror in Boston and a manhunt Friday that left the city streets barren, Boston police announced they had 19 year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in custody. Tsarnaev, along with his older brother Tamerlan, are suspected of killing three people and leaving over 180 others injured in the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday. They are also believed to have murdered an MIT police officer Thursday night.
