    I'm Skyping with a friend who lives in the area right now. She says things are really getting tense. The kid also went to her college.

    Jesus, I can't imagine how nervous she must be right now.

    Something is apparently going to happen at 9 P.M. EST. For now, the police are pretty much just circling the house and keeping still.

    EDIT 360: 8:29PM An ambulance is blocking something, EMS is coming to move it. New scanner is still trying to load so I'll keep it going. Asked again to keep chatter to a minimum. The scene sounds tense, but under control.
    EDIT 359: 8:26PM Officers asking for cold water. I'm looking at a new scanner right now so we'll see if that is more active.
    EDIT 358: 8:25PM Police told to stay at their post until 2100. Not sure what will happen at 9:00PM but they will fall back to "H4"
    EDIT 357: 8:23PM Chatter about a larger perimeter perhaps beyond the smaller one. Talking about offramps and highway codes.

      Yup, it appears it's all over and he's in custody.

      Wow, that was one hell of a ride.

      Yeah, HRT team got him in custody, so couldn't hear much of what actually happened from police scanner. Swat teams have been relieved, and they're congratulating everyone. They were calling an ambulance for him earlier, so lets just hope he's still alive. They haven't said.

        He was apparently questioned a little bit before being read his Miranda Rights. Details of the questioning haven't been released yet.

        And yeah, he's also still injured. How extensively though, I can't say.

        I think he's alive. They said he needs medical treatment, but they weren't specific.

        It's official, and he's alive!

        Oh thank God, he's alive, I want to know answers as to why he did it and such. Glad we can finally to this man to rest.

          So glad we arrested him. Now he's going to have to answer a ton of questions.

          I am VERY surprised that this guy was captured. After what happened last night with the death of that MIT campus officer and that gunfight where the first suspect died, I was sure that the second suspect would kill himself and take out some other people with him.

          Interested in the why and how, as it surfaces through trial, as a method of determining what intelligence did wrong in not detecting and preventing this from occur. Or if there were accomplices, etc. Information. Information is good.

          But, not particularly interested in pretending that his reasoning is valid as there is no justification.

            Of course the reasoning wouldn't be valid or justified, but it's still something that needs to be known.

              I've been watching this for nearly 24 hours. I'm exhausted and super, super happy with how it ended. I've still got the news on and the people that congregated around the home with the boat are cheering and chanting "U-S-A" and just look beside themselves with joy. It's been a tragic week, but how tonight ended was amazing.

              They got Djohar, the younger brother. He seemed to be a cool kid who was known by everybody and wanted to get ahead in life. I have a feeling the older brother played a role influencing him into this. He went to Dagestan (near Chechnya) for 6 months, so maybe that's where he got the training/indoctrination.

              Edit: Call me selfish, but I'm really happy that D&D can go back to being D&D.

              I'm so happy this ended well. I've been following too. I was watching a hockey game just now.They put an announcement on the big screens in the arena that he was taken custody and you could hear everyone in the audience shout "U-S-A" over and over and cheering/clapping loudly. Louder than people usually do during a game. This has been a long week for all Americans and I hope there isn't any more bombings in the weeks to come. I heard some people saying there could be other people related/who know to the suspects planning more attacks, though I really REALLY hope that's just a rumor.Now comes all the questions and trials.

              I think the father might have been indoctrinated/radicalized/recruited first, back home. Might be why there seems to a division between he and his brother and why the brother seems to look down on that family.

              Then probably the older son when he returned for six months.

              Then somehow got the younger one in on it, if even half-heartedly, when "he went missing" a month ago.

              ---

              Anyway, really like the outcome of this. Teamwork, cooperation, and good detective and tactical work goes a long way

              But the father seemed really shocked in the interview that something like this could've happened.

              True. But talking about corrupt or cowardly cops, framing... seems more like desperately being in denial to me.

                Looking at the younger brother's track record you would have never guessed he would do this. Looking at his Twitter and what friends said about him he came off as your typical teenager.

                The older one had a more notorious track record and I honestly think he's the mastermind behind this, but even he came off as a friendly guy, albeit very religious.

                Really want to hear answers from Dzhokhar and why he and his brother did this. No matter the reasoning it'll never be justified but I at least want to know what made them go this far, but honestly the older brother probably had all the answers and he's no longer with us.

                I saw this on the news at work! Sadly I was too busy working to see Obama speaking on it, but tonight did end on a good note. I'm glad this all happened quickly as well.

                Apparently the younger brother killed the older brother. Wasn't due to the fire fight with police. The police were handcuffing the older one when the younger one ran over him in the car to get away o_o

                If that's true then it's a shame we lost a chance to question him about how this all happened, and also pretty impressive of the police for being able to capture both of them alive even if one of them died right after.

                I hope now that this is all over there won't be a stupid backlash against Muslims/people who "look" Muslim like there was after 9/11.

                Massachusetts State Police has released a few photos of the younger suspect hiding in the boat last night.
