After what was a wild week of breaking news between Boston and West Texas, authorities in Boston got the second suspect in the Boston Bombings ALIVE early Friday night.
The Boston Marathon bombing suspect was captured alive but wounded Friday night — after holing up in a boat in a suburban backyard following a bloody rampage that left a cop dead and a daylong manhunt that shut down the city.
The arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and the earlier death of his brother during a firefight with cops, ended five days of terror sowed by the double bombing at the marathon finish line, which killed three people, wounded 176 and left the city of Boston on edge.
"We got him," Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted.
He called them losers! Watch as the uncle of the Boston bombing suspects speaks out.
What a crazy week! A fertilizer plant exploded in near Waco, Texas Wednesday. The blast injured hundreds of people. Authorities are not saying yet how many people were killed. Dozens of homes were destroyed.
From NBC News:
It is the “most devastating thing that’s happened to this community,” West Mayor Tommy Muska said at an news conference, late Wednesday.
"We need your prayers," Muska said. "There’s a lot of people that are hurt. And there’s a lot of people that I’m sure are not going to be here tomorrow."
Multiple officials confirmed that there were fatalities in the explosion but wouldn't give any early numbers. Muska said the fertilizer plant was already fully engulfed in flames between 6:30 and 7 p.m. local time (7:30 - 8 p.m. Eastern), when the explosion occured.
Update: There has been a 3rd explosion!
