Above are some of the photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev revealing whether or not he had any explosive devices on him.
The chaos erupted shortly after 6 p.m. when boat owner David Henneberry — alerted by a flapping tarp and a blood smear — found the fugitive bomb suspect huddled and bleeding in the bottom of his craft. Henneberry immediately called 911 and cops moved in, rushing people out of their homes while helicopters roared overhead.
As Watertown police crept closer, Tsarnaev was spotted “poking through the plastic” that covered the boat, said Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau.
Tsarnaev may have been inside the boat all day Friday as cops and SWAT teams combed the city looking for him. The wounded teen, who was lying in his own blood, didn’t surrender easily. An FBI agent negotiated with him for more than 20 minutes, Deveau told CNN.
Nobody wanted to approach Tsarnaev for fear he had explosives on his body. A robot was sent in to pull the tarp off the boat.
“Slowly, over a 15- to 20-minute period, we were able to get him to stand up and show us he didn’t have a device on him,” said the police chief. “We needed him to lift his shirt up and we could see his chest.”
Tsarnaev, who was cuffed about 8:45 p.m., wasn’t strapped with explosives.
It was stated that there was so much blood surrounding the young man that if he hadn’t have been found, he would have bled out.
