To the relief of an entire city, the news has finally come across that the 19 year old terror suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has been captured by police and that he is still alive.
While there may be a lot of people who would not want him to live based on his alleged crimes, there is also something else to think about. He is allegedly the only other known source for information as to why this happened, and what they hoped the outcome would be? The people of Boston, Mass need and very much deserve these answers. They want to know why their hometown? Why would they do this to them? If Dzhokhar Tsarnaey had died, those answers would have died with them.
Allegedly, around 6:30 or so PM EDT, a call went out to the police that there was something suspicious going on inside of a boat that had a tarp on it. The police investigated and brought in a helicopter with the ability to detect body heat. They then removed the tarp and found out that they did indeed have the young man, whom they have been tearing up the city of Boston to find.
There is a lot of speculation as to how many shots were fired at the suspect, and if the boat was set on fire or not, but the suspect was definitely shot at some point, and had lost quite a bit of blood. This put him in a weakened condition. He was in fact, taken in to custody alive however.
The streets of Boston, Mass have erupted in cheers and applause for their local police, FBI and other law enforcement who worked tirelessly to get this done swiftly. The law enforcemet were exhausted, frazzled and tired of the roller coaster of emotion and adrenaline that searching for the suspects brought, but they were unyielding in their efforts and they paid off.
The people of Boston are celebrating the ending of more than 24 hours in lock down and almost a week of feeling as though they were trapped in a hell of others making . They do not have to fear not knowing who did this to their city anymore, and now they know specifically, where the people are who are responsible for all of it. They are exuberant in the streets of Boston tonight.
The Urban Daily is sure that this story will continue to unfold in the coming days and weeks, and we will continue to follow it.
