Police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH’-kahr tsahr-NY’-ev) was in custody. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday in a furious attempt to escape police.

The brothers are suspects in Monday’s marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.

Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect went on.

Crowds gathered after a nearly 28 hour lockdown to applaud and cheer the Boston area authorities.

    If he is found guilty, and as liberal that Mass. is, they will most likely spank his hands and tell him not to do that again.
