WATERTOWN, MA (ABCNews.com) — The alleged Boston Marathon bomber who hid from authorities for more than 12 hours was captured tonight by police, sending cheers up through the Watertown neighborhood where he was found.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was found by a homeowner lying in a boat in the man’s backyard around 7 p.m.

Gunfire broke out in the immediate aftermath of the discovery, but quickly stopped as police hunkered down for a standoff with Tsarnaev that lasted a little more than an hour and a half.

    These brothers are/were Muslims and yet the media keeps referring to their country of birth, etc., etc. Why not say they were Muslims? Even though they accepted scholarships to attend US colleges and one even became a citizen (on 9/11/2012), these Muslim brothers obviously have a hatred for America and were determined to destroy as many innocent people as they could.
