by Chris Patterson


WATERTOWN, MA --- A sigh of relief in Watertown, Massachusetts Friday night after police arrested Dzhokar Tsarnaev -  the last suspect in this week's Boston Marathon Bombings.

A short time later, an ambulance left the scene with the suspect inside.

The 19-year-old suspect was arrested after he was found hiding in a boat in the backyard of a home.The owner of the boat notified police when he found a tear in the tarp protecting his boat. Inside the boat, according to the owner, a bloody mess was found.

Police arrived at the scene repeatedly appealing for the Tsarnaev to surrender. Police fired several shots and eventually arrested the suspect.

Three other people have been taken into custody for questioning at a residence in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Authorities believe that residence may have been connected to Tsarnaev.

Police say the suspect is in a hospital in serious condition.
