Watertown - Following a press conference police in Watertown announce that the house by house search for the 19-year-old bomber has ended, with no arrests.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev is dead, his 19-year-old brother Dzhorkhar Tsarnaev has escaped a police manhunt that has been searching for him nonstop since he and his brother detonated homemade explosives at the Boston Marathon finish line, killing three and wounding over a hundred others.
Police were hot on the 19-year-old's trail following the murder of 26-year-old MIT security officer Sean Collier, as well as a carjacking which led to a firefight in which over 200 rounds were exchanged. A firefight that eventually killed Dzhorkhar's brother, Tamerlan who suffered innumerable bullet wounds may have possibly died of additional wounds from an explosive blast.
Restrictions have been lifted in the Watertown-Boston area, following police searching house to house as well as checking vehicles.
Gov. Deval Patrick urged people in the area to “remain vigilant” but to go about their business. Colonel Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police says their is no indication that Dzhokhar is travelling in a vehicle, Alben continued to state to the assembled media that he believes Dzhokhar is still in the area since he has significant ties to the Boston area.
According to the New York Times, the baby faced 19-year-old accused bomber may also be wounded. Two sources report that twice today police had been able to track Dzhokhar down using a blood trail.
Transit services have resumed in the Watertown-Boston area, and scheduled events in Watertown will proceed. Ten State Police officers will augment Watertown Police patrols, working 8-hour shifts around the clock until Monday.
