Watertown: Suspect in marathon bombing in serious condition after capture

A 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings remained in hospitalized in serious condition over the weekend, after he was taken into custody late Friday night during an intense manhunt that placed the city in lockdown.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured while hiding in a boat in the backyard of a Watertown resident.

Tsarnaev’s brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed early Friday while attempting to escape police.

The brothers are suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others.

The men are also suspected of killing an MIT police officer, 26-year-old Sean Collier of Wilmington, in his vehicle late Thursday and seriously wounding an MBTA police officer, 33-year-old Richard Donohue of Woburn.

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