BOSTON (AP) — The only sedate place in Boston after the arrest of the surviving marathon bombing suspect may have been the spot were Monday's tragedy unfolded.

Dozens gathered Friday near where the twin bombs exploded to pay solemn tribute to the three killed and more than 180 wounded in the explosions.

Celebrations erupted in many other communities including suburban Watertown where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH'-kahr tsahr-NY'-ev) was taken into custody after being found hiding in a boat parked in the backyard of a home.

The jubilation was widespread. The mayor of Boston tweeted, "We got him!" And at the home of the New York Mets, fans leapt to their feet and cheered.
