Cheers and jubilation follow apprehension of second suspect

Cheering “Boston Strong” and “USA,” hundreds of jubilant Bostonians gathered on the Common and around the city on Friday night to celebrate the capture of the last Boston Marathon bombing suspect and the first sense of relief in the region in nearly a week.

“In a way it feels like we’ve been in this siege mentality, and it just feels like it’s been lifted,” said Ricky Pickering, 25, of Back Bay, after thousands of people in Boston, Watertown, and other communities were told to stay in their homes on Friday while the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev went on.
