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.
