Following a citywide lockdown, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass., was taken into police custody Friday evening in connection to the recent Boston Marathon bombings.

The arrest followed a day-long manhunt for Dzhokhar in the Boston suburb of Watertown after he and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was the second suspect in the explosions, robbed a 7-Eleven at gunpoint.

Tamerlan was previously killed in a face-off after the two men had shot and killed an MIT campus security guard before carjacking a Mercedes SUV.

At approximately 7 PM, shots were fired in the area Dzhokhar was located, leading to reports that officials had him cornered. He was reportedly hiding out on a boat in a residential backyard.

After announcing on Twitter the suspect was in custody, Boston police tweeted "CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody."
