The second Boston Marathon bombing suspect is alive and in police custody tonight (April 19). Dzokhar A. Tsarnaev was captured after a gun fire and a stand off  just outside a residence in Watertown, Mass. As the news broke, country music stars like Lee Brice and Charlie Daniels celebrated and praised law enforcement.

Multiple reports indicate cheering could be heard throughout the neighborhood as Tsarnaev was taken away. CBS news reports he was transported from the scene by ambulance. Earlier in the night, ABC news was reporting the owner of the home stepped outside after the area-wide lockdown was lifted and spotted blood on his 44-foot boat. The owner then alerted authorities and the manhunt centered on the watercraft, which was covered for the winter. It is believed he was hiding there for much of the past 18 hours.

Tsarnaev escaped on foot after Thursday night’s shootings which resulted in the death of an MIT police officer. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in that shootout. The 19-year-old suspect was the one in the white hat in pictures distributed by the F.B.I. The extent of his injuries is not clear at this moment.
