(WBNG Binghamton) After a week of terror, the Boston community, along with communities around the world, can start to heal.

Friday night, the 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken in custody after an intense manhunt.

Law enforcement agencies found Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in a boat at a home in Watertown, Mass.

News of his capture spread quickly, literally within minutes through social media.

That news was met with praise for all law enforcement agencies involved.

Crowds poured into the streets, cheering those agencies on.

CBS News reports Tsarnaev is being treated at Beth Israel Hospital, and that he may have died if he hadn't been found. He is in serious conditions, suffering from leg and neck wounds.

Guards are stationed outside the hospital where the being treated.

A special interrogation team, used on high value targets, is standing by to question him when he is able to communicate.

"Law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have a million questions and those questions need to be answered," Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said.

Officials in Watertown are still collecting evidence.

The FBI said they had contact with the oldest brother in 2011 after a foreign government flagged him.

Officials said they found nothing suspicious.
