Boston police and residents relieved after apprehension of remaining Boston Marathon bombing suspect

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- Police say the Boston Marathon bombing suspects used their carjacking victim's ATM card before a gunfight with authorities.
Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau says the suspects also told the carjacking victim they bombed Monday's race and killed a police officer.
A car chase and shootout ensued when a Watertown officer saw the two brothers in different cars and followed them.
The suspects exchanged gunfire with police, wounding a transit officer and tossing a bomb and two hand grenades.
Deveau says Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) ran out of ammunition and police tackled him, before Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) drove the carjacking victim's Mercedes toward them.
Police dove out of the way and the Mercedes dragged the other suspect's body down the block.
Police negotiated Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's surrender after a resident saw him in his boat hours later.

BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is in serious but stable condition and likely can't communicate yet.
Patrick spoke outside Fenway Park after appearing in a pregame ceremony at Saturday afternoon's Red Sox game.
Two bombs exploded at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon, killing three people. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was killed during Thursday night's manhunt. More than 180 people were injured in the explosions.
Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) was killed Friday. His brother, 19-year-old Dzhokhar (joh-KHAR') Tsarnaev, was captured later Friday inside a boat parked in a Watertown backyard after a furious search. He is recovering at a Boston hospital guarded by armed officers.
Patrick says he thinks the suspect is "not able to communicate yet."

BOSTON (AP) -- Federal public defenders have agreed to represent the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Miriam Conrad, the federal defender for Massachusetts, says her office expects to represent Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) after he is charged.
Tsarnaev remained hospitalized Saturday after being wounded in a firefight with police Friday. His brother was killed.
Conrad says she believes Dzhokhar should have a lawyer appointed as soon as possible because there are "serious issues regarding possible interrogation."
U.S. officials said a special interrogation team for high-value suspects would question him without reading him his Miranda rights, under a public safety exception that exists to protect police and the public from immediate danger. Miranda rights include the right to remain silent and the right to have a lawyer.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the exception applies only when there's a continued threat to public safety and is "not an open-ended exception" to the Miranda rule.

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) -- Two foreign nationals have been arrested on immigration violations in the Massachusetts town where police say the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect may have once lived.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Saturday that Homeland Security Investigations agents had arrested two people in New Bedford.
An ICE spokesman would not comment on the people who were arrested or if they are connected to bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv). The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth student remains hospitalized after exchanging gunfire with police Friday.
ICE did not say whether they are suspected in any other crimes. A federal prosecutor's spokeswoman declined comment.
New Bedford police said federal authorities searched off-campus housing near the school Friday and took three people in for questioning. Police say Tsarnaev may have lived at the complex.
