It was a dramatic 48 hours as police conducted a manhunt for the two brothers thought to be responsible for the Boston Marathon attack.

A dramatic shoot-out in the Boston suburb of Watertown in the early hours of Friday left one brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, dead.

His younger brother, Dzhokhar, escaped wounded but was captured Friday night after a standoff with police in a backyard in Watertown. He was believed to be hiding out in a boat with a tarp over it.

"We got him," Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted.

"CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won," the Boston Police Department said on its Twitter account.
