Hours after one suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was killed in a shootout with police, a citywide manhunt for the dead man's brother ended in the arrest of 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the town of Watertown. He was taken away in an ambulance after being apprehended.
The celebrity corner of the Twitterverse (along with the rest of it) pretty much exploded with love for Boston, sarcasm over the whole got-him-cornered-on-a-boat thing and appreciation that the day did not end with another death.
And then there was Donald Trump taking the opportunity to get political (in addition to showing support for Beantown)...
Donald Trump: "Get ALL the info, then quick trial, then death penalty for the Boston killer of innocent children and people! Do not be kind." And: "Is the Boston killer eligible for Obama Care to bring him back to health?"
Olivia Wilde "So goddamn relieved. Boston, I love you. May the bars stay open til dawn."
Rainn Wilson "Congrats, #Boston. Sleep safe tonight."
Kim Kardashian "Watching the news right now. This is insane. I'm glad they finally captured the 2nd suspect!!! #prayersforBoston"
