The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is in the custody of police.

Nineteen-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev was found hiding in the backyard of a Watertown home inside of a boat. After more than an hour of police surrounding the backyard, Tsarnaev was captured.

Reports are upwards of 20-30 gunshots were heard as police located Tsarnaev. Flashbangs were used during the capture.

Tsarnaev and his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, are suspected by the FBI for carrying out Monday's attack, which killed three people and injured more than 170 others.

Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police Thursday night.
