The Surveillance Image of the Boston Suspect Moments Before He Was Captured

Moments before he was captured by authorities Friday night, this is a surveillance image of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, as he was climbing out of the boat where he had likely been hiding for hours.

CBS News reported the image was taken from a helicopter that had been surveying the scene overhead. A Watertown, Mass. resident said he saw smeared blood on the boat parked in his backyard and that the cover had been torn. He reportedly used a ladder to climb up and saw a man inside.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose older brother and alleged accomplice Tamerlan was killed early Friday morning, was taken into custody and transported to a Boston-area hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during a shootout with police the night before.
