10:00 pm
right direction. a country closed off to most for so long, sleeping. a 50-year nightmare for many citizens, finally, maybe waking up. to what? time will tell. live tonight in the city of boston. this is a city that's spent the last 24 hours still pounded but there is a measure of satisfaction in the air right now, because the two men police believe killed and wounded people are now off the streets and nowhere in boston today did the city's relief and pride show more than at fenway park. it was hard not to be part of the red sox nation today. the heroes of boston this weekend, everybody wearing a police uniform. they're the ones who hunted down
10:01 pm
and arrested dzhokhar tsarnaev. while they celebrated at fenway, police cars lined the streets today to pay respects to the m.i.t. officer killed thursday night allegedly by his brother. sean collier's body was delivered by motorcade to wilmington, massachusetts. tonight, new information about tsarnaev, straight from the hospital where he is in serious condition. if this bombing suspect has anything to say, lit have to wait. officials are saying that the 19-year-old college student has injuries to his throat and for now cannot talk. he was finally surrounded and taken down in a neighborhood in watertown, just outside of boston. but he did not go quietly. brian todd has details for you. >> reporter: as he was cornered, he engaged police with gunfire.
10:02 pm
it went on for several minutes and police lobbed in flash bang percussions to stun him. in the end, authorities showed their determination to catch the suspect live. listen to officers negotiate with him as he's holed up inside a boat. >> reporter: we snaked through alleys and back lots to get to within a couple hundred yards of the boat. there was a word of reassurance during negotiations. and an appeal to someone they knew was in pain. as we shot this exclusive video, police rushed us, saying we were in the cross fire zone. >> clear out, okay? >> reporter: it was just minutes later police captured tsarnaev. he had lost blood, weakened. these pictureks show thermal images from a helicopter as he
10:03 pm
hid in the boat. the entire neighborhood had been on lockdown. after the standoff, we spoke to neighbors. this is one of the houses where police were combing through the neighborhood, looking through the suspect. this is eddie beck's house. >> they came in, they searched the living room area, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen area. >> reporter: they search cabinets and things like that? >> no, but they went through the bedrooms, closet doors. >> beck shared his own footage of the s.w.a.t. team combing through his house. they didn't know where tsarnaev was or whether he was carrying explosives. >> knowing that they had him surrounded and so close to our neighborhood, it made us think he might have been here at nighttime and they flushed him out into that area.
10:04 pm
>> reporter: vivian stevens also lives close to the house where tsarnaev was cornered. how do you feel that it's over? >> it's surreal. i think i'm numb. i can't believe all this just happened. i know it's happening, but i'm very happy that it's over and they got him. >> reporter: a sentiment echoed by thousands of her neighbors in watertown. cheering police as they pulled out after the arrest. . >> cnn's brian todd is with me. you have some information about the officers who handcuffed the suspects at the end. they had some motivation, didn't they? >> reporter: they did. the officers were from the massachusetts bay transit authority police. they were the ones that put the final handcuffs on him friday night. it was one of their officers
10:05 pm
that was injured in that really violent exchange between the two brothers and police. overnight thursday into friday. also new pictures for you, don. daylight video of the boat that was -- that the suspect was holed up in on friday and friday night. we have new daylight video we got just a short time ago of the boat, without the tarp on it. law enforcement authorities and others are combing over it, taking pictures of it. that is an active crime scene still.
10:06 pm
>> his family released a statement that says, our family applaud the entire law enforcement community for a job well done and trusts the justice system will now do its job. none of this will bring our beloved martin back or reverse the injuries these men inflicted on our family. we continue to pray for healing and comfort on the long road that lies ahead for every victim and their loved one. this is him indeed an ambulance last night. now he's under heavy guard where some of the people he allegedly harmed have also been receiving care. we want to go to elizabeth cohen. elizabeth, there are new details about his injuries since i last spoke with you. what do you know? >> reporter: don, these are very details from my colleagues. also what we've learned from
10:07 pm
susan candiotti. what we've learned is he's had wounds to his throat and also, this is very, very important, it's intubated and sedated. somewhat that means is he has a tube going down his throat that's attached to a ventlator that breathes for him. that doesn't mean he can't believe on his own. often doctors will put them on a ventilator because it takes the strain away. as you said earlier, this explains why the governor has said that he can't communicate right now, injuries to the throat, sedated and intubated. don? >> elizabeth, give us an update on the bombing survivors. how many are still in the hospital at this point? >> reporter: there are at least 57 bombing survivors still in hospitals around the boston area. two in critical condition. >> elizabeth cohen, thank you
10:08 pm
very much. we appreciate your reporting. we want to go back now to watertown and cnn's susan candiotti. susan, that street is still an active crime scene. how long will investigators be there and what are they doing? >> certainly what a lot of people around here would like to know. they're taking a lot of time and there's no rush here. they want to carefully go over every inch of that boat that you saw, and to make sure that they're not missing any other pieces of evidence, possibly hidden explosives elsewhere. there's no indication of that, but they want to pick up every bit of evidence they can before they close this down and reopen the street. and they hope that the residents of this area understand. . but tonight we have those thermal images taken of the boat, these coming to us from the massachusetts state police. using technology that's been around for years, but they use heat imaging to look from the
10:09 pm
air down at that boat where the suspect was hiding. and you can see in the pictures, the heat inside that body where he was lying underneath that tarp. and then it goes to a black image where you can make out his feet as he was inside the boat. but before they approached it, they used a robotic arm to move closer and closer and lift up that tarp before they moved into try to get him to come out. of course, there was an exchange of gunfire and they got him out of there. as elizabeth cohen was reporting, and as i have learned from a law enforcement official, even if the suspect wanted to cooperate, he can't because of his medical condition. but that's something they're going to want to do to find out from him all the information that they can before he is read his rights. they have that special exemption under federal law to talk to him
10:10 pm
to find out whether he has any information that could put the public at risk before his rights are read to him. don? >> susan candiotti in watertown, as well. thank you, susan. appreciate your reporting. the father of the tsarnaev brothers stands by their innocence, and the uncle says it's time for dzhokhar to seek for forgiveness. >> he use his younger brother. he wasted his life. i understand he did not do it -- i mean, he messed up his own. i don't know what was going on there, but he messed up his life. that's why he decided to take lives of innocent people, hurt innocent people. maybe he's full of evil, he turned to be evil. as i said, confused, entirely
10:11 pm
confused. >> the family of the widow said this today -- coming up this hour, from the twin bombings, to his final standoff with police. we're looking back at the events in boston as they unfolded. how did police identify the suspects with such remarkable speed? what's the motive? were there warning signs authorities may have missed? and what's next as the city of boston begins to recover from a week of terror? and last year, she wasn't eating so well. so i recommended boost complete nutritional drink to help her get the nutrition she was missing. and now she drinks it every day. well, it tastes great!

10:16 pm
them everywhere. how do the authorities go about piecing the images together? >> well, first of all, they are looking for a time sequence and looking for moment of explosion to the corralled moment there and preceding time and it is temporal, and this is a proceeding that believe it or not technology and techniques and training that have been developed in the department of defense and elsewhere we have 24-hour surveillance from a drone or other data source capturing modes. all of it is moving lightning speed, but it is the future, and the future is now and we will see more and not less. >> on a personal note, you live in watertown? >> yes sh, we saw you all week,d you were standing in front of my kids' favorite restaurant. >> town diner. >> dunkin' donut, and so it is a terrible and emotional week foor me. >> family and everybody okay? >> family is fine, and i was at m.i.t. two blocks from where

just who are the two b brothers implicated in this horrible week of violence? dzhokhar and his brother came here from the chechen region. the fbi asked to investigate them with ties to the extremist groups, and he died friday in the shootout with police. the brother escaped that shootout and managed to elude
10:21 pm
police until he was found in a boat last night. he is in stable condition in the hospital. when tamerlan was interviewed overseas by the fbi as a follower of radical islam. here is joe johns. >> well, they found nothing incriminating and the fact that tamerlan was interviewed by the fbi two years before the bombings, was already stirring up controversy before the bombing in watertown. the chairman of the security committee. >> if they let him out of their sights, then that is an issue for me. >> reporter: the mother said that agents had been harassing her son for years. >> they knew what my son was doing, and they knew what actions and what dsites on the
10:22 pm
internet he was doing. they were watching every step of him and telling today, this is a terrorist act. >> reporter: the fbi confirmed in 2011 they interviewed the older brother and family members, but it did not say how many times. it was at the request of russian intelligence ak considereding the a senior u.s. official. the fbi said that the request was based on information that tsarnaev was a follower of radical islam and a strong believer and had changed drastically since 2010. they said they had checked the u.s. government databases and looked for derogatory telephone communications and possible online sites promoting radical activity, but the fbi said they did not find any terrorist activity and gave the results to the russian government, and did not ask for more information, and then they closed the file. >> they don't give you more than everything that can be done has been done unless you need to
10:23 pm
know more of the story. >> reporter: and the records show that he flew to russia and stayed for six months and then returned to new york in july. it is not clear what he did there, but tsarnaev's father said his son with was him at all times, but when he got back, things were different. chairman mccall said he started to put jihadist material on web sites on youtube. >> what i am concerned about is that he may have been radicalized and trained by the chechen rebels who are the fiercest jihad warriors. >> reporter: but the uncle said that his radicalization started in the boston area. >> it started right there in cambridge. right there on the streets of cambridge. where this guy, this new convert is going to the local mosque on massachusetts avenue, so, i'm say saying that it started there. >> reporter: the documents show
10:24 pm
no record of the younger brother dzhokhar leaving the country, and tamerlan was a legal permanent resident of the united states, and his brother is a naturalized citizen. both men were born in kyrgyzstan. don? >> thank you, joe. just ahead, a boston suburban neighborhood turns into a war zo zone. we are learning new details about the early morning shootout in watertown and what killed suspect number one. it's crisp, refreshing beer, brewed with the natural flavor of lemonade that's inspired by a classic german style and perfect for summers out here, here and especially here. our family's been brewing in chippewa falls for six generations. we craft lots of great beers but this one says summer. i'm jake and we're the leinenkugels. grab a summer shandy and join us out here.

10:28 pm
progress up there, but it may take hours. >> that was early in the evening friday as police and fbiing as tightened the circles around the boston circumstance suburb of watertown because they knew somewhere in there was dzhokhar. >> there was an assassination of an m.i.t. officer. >> you believe by these two b brothers? >> yes. >> why would they want to kill this police officer? >> that is under investigation, because he was responding to a loud disturbance call and next thing that happens. >> on the campus of m.i.t. or at the convenient store? >> i believe on campus, and then they fled. they did a carjacking, and somehow, for some reason, they ended up coming to watertown. and he was responding to just a loud disturbance call, and next thing you know, it happens. >> was it on the campus of m.i.t. or at the convenient store? >> i believe it was on campus,
10:29 pm
and then they fled. they did a carjacking, and somehow for some reason they ended up coming to watertown. that's where our officers en gaged the two of them. >> what happened? pick it up the story there. so they are in a hijacked car that had hijacked the car, took the driver, and then they let the driver go after the driver supposedly went to the atm and gave them money? >> yes, money withdrawn from the atm, and what happened in watertown, one of the first police officers ark and we are getting information based on pinging the cell phone that he's in watertown, so we know what stre streets he is on. >> and so, tsarnaev was using his own cell phone? >> no, the victim's. >> they had bragged to the victim that they were the bombers of the marathon. >> that is what i understand, because they said, we did the
10:30 pm
boston marathon bombing and we killed the police officer. >> did they explin why? >> no. >> lucky for him, and lucky for us that his cell phone remained in that vehicle so we were able to get updates. and so it is now 12:30 in the morning, down a residential street in watertown, and everybody is sleeping and sleepy neighborhood and our offices see two vehicles, the brothers in two car, and including the one that is hijacked. he notified the department, and we tell them not to do anything, and so then we stop the car, and they unload on the car. >> when you say unload, what does that mean? gl came out shooting. >> shooting what? >> handguns and a long arm on the car, and but we don't know what that is. we estimated over 200 shots fired in five to ten-minute
10:31 pm
period. in the exchange, all of the sudden something was thrown at my police officers, and we now find out it is the exact bomb that blew up at the marathon n monday. at some point the first brother who died at the scene, he all of the sudden comes out from undercover and just starts walking down the street shooting at the police officers trying to get closer. now my closest police officer is five to ten feet away and they are exchanging gun fire and he runs out of ammunition, the bad guy. one of my police officers tackles him in the street, and we are trying to get him handcuffed and two to three police officers handcuff iing h in the street. >> the older brother. >> yes, and at the same time, they obviously have television, and very, very stressful situation. one of them yells out, look out. here comes the black suv, the car jacked car directly at them. they dive out of the way, and he runs over his brother and drags
10:32 pm
him a distance down the street. >> in effect killing his brother this? >> yes. >> and we will get more of that. and who can forget the beginning of the end for the sar -- sarn yef brothers. that is thursday night's gun fight that wounded tamerlan tsarna tsarnaev, and i want to go back and ask you what you saw? you said that was your neighborhood? >> yes, it was 1:00 in the morning and i was asleep and woke up to the house shaking in a loud boom. at first i didn't think it was too much. and you know, i heard a second boom and realized that something was going on so i went to the window. by the time i got to the window, about three police cars came up
10:33 pm
and parked right in front of my house and got out and immediately started exchanging gun fire with the individuals. i couldn't see them, because think were down the street bhoked by a house. >> but you were on the third floor? >> yes, correct. >> but you did see the exchange between the police and the brothers. you said that older brother, tamerlan charged police officers? >> yes, he did. at one point he ran toward the police and tried to go across the road and a police officer went out and grabbed him and took him to the ground. >> so the police had them corner and the older one got out of the car. >> i couldn't see if they were in the car or not, but -- >> they said they were throwing the explosives out of the car. >> i just saw the explosives going off, and i could not see him until he came into my vehicle. >> so he gets out of the vehicle and charges the police officers, and they take him down and they are trying to handcuff him on
10:34 pm
the ground and then what happened? >> at that point, a black suv came out from behind the house where they were and i couldn't see him, and ran over to his brother. >> do you believe that the younger one was in the suv? >> yes. >> and dzhokhar was in the suv driving and ran over his own brother? >> yes. >> you believe his killed his own brother? >> i believe so, yes. >> what happened with the -- when he drove towards them? >> there were two police officers who had their back to where the car was, because they were trying to subdue the first suspect, and they got out of the way just in the nick of time. he went over them. and then they started shooting rounds into the suv and then took off to follow the suv, but there were a bunch of cops who stayed back to tend to the first suspect. >> en we ran over his brother what happened? did you say he dragged him? >> yeah, about 20 feet. >> about 20 feet he dragged his own brother down the street. what were you doing? were you alone at the time?
10:35 pm
>> my roommate and his girlfriend were in the third floor with me. and my roommate and i were at the window and his girlfriend was in the other room. >> your reaction? >> shock. awe. nervous, anxious, and the whole realm really. >> yeah. >> so. >> unbelievable. and what do they do like once the car got away and you said they were shooting rounds at the car and the police who were there on the scene, did they at the end to other person or too far away? >> they at the ended to the officer that was down, the transit officer first. >> and so they got him -- >> yes, into the ambulance in a matter of minutes and off and ten or more minutes later, they had an ambulance for the s suspect. >> thank you, curtis for joining us. >> thank you. >> yes.
10:36 pm
police, fire, and first responders are lining the streets of boston the night paying a silent tribute to fallen police officer sean collier. officials say for no obvious reason the brothers shot and killed sean collier for no reason. the vigil is set to be in his honor in his hometown of wilmington. poppy harlow is there. it is a sad story. you spoke to some of the people who were close to him, his close friends. >> i did. it was an amazing scene that unfolded behind us this evening. it was the vigil for that gunned down police officer sean
10:37 pm
collier, and we were there when the motorcade left boston medical center and brought out here to at least 500 people from the community and fellow police officers, and et cetera coming to honor this 26-year-old hero that we are told by so many people all he wanted to do was to be a police officer. he did realize that dream. tonight, we heard from his brother, andrew, and also the stepfather, and his boss, the police chief at m.i.t. and many people talking about their best memory of this man. and after the vigil, we had a chance to speak one-on-one with a man who knows collier very well, an m.i.t. police chief john difava and he discussed how much this young man meant to m.i.t. and the community and gives you a sense of the quality of person he was. listen. >> i believe he had the calling. he just wanted to be in law enforcement. it was not about the pay or the
10:38 pm
benefits or the retirement, but it was about law enforcement is supposed to be p all about and to help people. and he was a master at helping peop people. i think that m.i.t. lost someone that truly cared about them. i think that we lost someone who we learned more from him, than with he ever learned from us. >> reporter: at 26 years old. that says a lot. >> yes, and you know, i have been a cop for almost 40 years and i was with the state police and with m.i.t. for 11 and you see a lot. you really do, anever saw anything like this. it just, everything about it is just wrong. the killing of him was so senseless. the loss of a person of his quality and his age, and the fact that it happened on a college campus, and everything about this was wrong. nothing fits. just crazy. >> and don, tonight, also, we
10:39 pm
talked to three m.i.t. students who are also emts and they were close friends of collier and they came with flowers and messages for his family, and interestingly we learned that not only were they close friends of his but they were the three student emts who had to respond to the call after his shooting and go to collier. incredibly, incredibly difficult for them to handle. unimaginable really, don, but a sad night, but a night honoring this young man as well. >> yeah, i can only imagine. poppy harlow thank you very much for that, poppy. and straight ahead, the final moments before the capture last night, and inside information and a moment by moment breakdown of how police captured sar nef. we went out and asked people a simple question:
10:40 pm
how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪
10:41 pm
10:42 pm
fact, they have him cornered right now. >> who is corner ed? >> they believe it is the suspect. >> we heard what appeared to be several shots that sounds different than the flash bang. i have heard one of othose
10:43 pm
before, but it distinctively sounded different. it was definitely shots being fired. >> this is cnn breaking news. and if you are just joining us, good evening, everyone. what started out 23 hours ago now seems to be finally over. the last suspect, the search for the suspect according to boston police department is now in custody. >> to dday, the city of boston, the city of cambridge and the city of watertown and any other communities can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that two perp tray or thes who caused so much pain and anguish are no longer a threat to our personal safety and to our communities. >> i want you to hear more from the chief of police in watertown. that's a suburb of boston where a massive police dragnet closed in on dzhokhar tsarnaev, and he was taken down. >> when did you realize that it was going down that you had the
10:44 pm
second suspect? >> we -- well, it was late in the day. we had a report that we got some of the citizens to keep vigilant, and we got the call and sounded like really good information. >> the person who called in said that there is a guy in the boat in my backyard and looks like there is blood there. pick up the story there. >> at that point, we had a couple of thousand police officers on scene and the turnout was incredible the support we got from the state, and from the region, so that we had the tactical people to be able to close that scene down and security it. we did take our time to make sure that everybody was safe in the neighborhood. eventually, we had to use some flash bangs to render the subject a little dazed. >> tell us what a flash bang is? >> it is something to render
10:45 pm
someone for a short time. so we were able to get him to stand up, and show us that he did not have a device on him. >> he is lying in the boat, and lying there for several hours and wounded and bleeding and obviously weak. you come over there and what do you say to him? you have a bull horn to say, come out with your hands up? >> we have a negotiator on the second floor of the house looking down at the boat. >> you could see him? >> no, we could not see him, because there was a plastic tarp over him, but we had the state police helicopter to tell us when there was movement in the boat by the heat sensor, so we could tell that he was alive and moving and we began the negotiations that way. and over a long period of time we were able to get him to sur rend er without any other, anybody hurt or injured. >> so he did not use any more gun fire while he was in the boat? >> well, once we got the -- there was early gun fire when we got into the area, because he exchanged gun fire with some of the officers and we secured the scene, and then no more gun
10:46 pm
fire. >> what kind of weapon did he have? >> we are not sure, because the crime scene is live down there, and the crime scene ser tlch is for the fbi, and we don't know what is in the boat. there could be devices. >> and the fbi is in charge of that. >> the scene, yes. >> did he have explosive vest on his body like the older brother had on the night before? >> well, that is why we didn't go near him until we told him that we wanted to lift up the shirt to see the chest until we felt comfortable to send people in to show us that he didn't have anything. and -- >> did he do that? >> after 20 or 30 minutes. >> so he had no explosives in the boat? >> well, not on the person. it is a decent sized boat so we don't know what else was in there. he needed first aid so he was transported which by ambulance into a boston hospital. >> two brothers accused of committing such terrible crimes. why?
10:47 pm
we will get some insight on the so-called sibling effect next. yeah, we found that wonderful thing. and you smiled. and threw it. and i decided i would never, ever leave it anywhere. because that wonderful, bouncy, roll-around thing... had made you play. and that... had made you smile. [ announcer ] beneful. play. it's good for you.
10:48 pm
10:49 pm
i want to get back to the boston marathon bombings and when something like that happens, we are always left with the question why. why would two men who came to america with their family in search of a better life turn on their adoptive home. their uncle felt he knew why. >> i can only say what i think
10:50 pm
is behind it. being losers and not being able to settle themselves. thereby just hating everybody with it. >> losers. is it as simple as that, as being a loser or something more in their heads that led them to such a tragic end. psychologist wendy walsh joins me. wendy, what do you think drove these young men to commit such an atrocity, and will we ever know? >> we may never know, but there are certainly lots of possibilities, don. i mean, these are two young men who may have power dynamic of younger brother and older brother and may have felt culturally isolated despite they had been in the country ten years and the older brother had been known the say he had no american friends. and the search for identity that teena teenagers and young adults seek out to turn to the extreme parts of the muslim religion and i must stop here to add that one of the biggest tragedies here is that good muslim americans again
