Boston Celebrates

CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.

Tonight's Red Sox and Bruins games were canceled, but over at Citi Field, our Matt Sullivan reports:

The celebration is, of course, bittersweet. Four people are dead and many more were injured. There's still a lot of work to be done.
