Boston bomb suspect taken in custody

Posted: Updated:

 From The Associated Press:

 Boston Police say a 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings is in custody after a manhunt that left the city virtually paralyzed and his older brother and accomplice dead.

 

Police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was in custody.

His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday in a furious attempt to escape police.

 

The brothers are suspects in Monday's marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.
