Boston bombing suspect in serious condition

By Associated Press. CREATED Apr 20, 2013

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - The surviving suspect in the horrifying attack on the Boston Marathon is being held at a hospital after being captured following a pair of shootouts with police.


Authorities say Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH'-kahr tsahr-NY'-ev) is in serious condition after an arrest that happened only after police lifted a lockdown that had largely paralyzed the Boston area.


Officials say Tsarnaev and his brother set off the twin explosions at Monday's marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 180 others.


Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police earlier Friday.


Authorities say the brothers also killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer during their spree.


A Justice Department official says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will not be read his Miranda rights before he's questioned by a special interrogation team
