Boston Manhunt Probably Over

Authorities appear to have located and pinned down the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing (the first having been killed in a shootout with police) hiding in a boat behind a residence in Watertown where a search has continued all day and a "shelter in place" direction had just been lifted.  A resident venturing into his yard after the all clear noticed something out of place in his back yard and notified authorities.

Shots have been fired and the details aren't perfectly clear (most importantly, the question of whether the suspect is dead or alive, and whether any law enforcement officers have been hurt in this final episode of the manhunt), but this drama seems to have a certain conclusion and resolution at this point.
