Boston, April 20 - Captured after a 23-hour massive manhunt, the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev, is in serious condition in the hospital, according to police.
The suspect "was severely injured in most likely the shootout that occurred" overnight Thursday, though he may also have been hurt in an exchange of gunfire Friday night in Watertown, a Boston suburb, CNN reported citing police Commissioner Ed Davis.
The dramatic capture of Dzhokar Tsarnaev came after a Watertown resident saw blood on a boat in his neighbour's backyard, Davis said. "He opened the tarp and saw a man covered in blood," he said. The man retreated and alerted law enforcement.
