The story of how Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found hiding in a boat in the backyard of a Watertown, Mass., home is every bit as wild as the manhunt.
Dave Henneberry’s family told the New York Daily News that Henneberry went outside to smoke and get some air after the city curfew was lifted at 6:00 p.m. on Friday. While outside, Henneberry apparently noticed a few things wrong with his boat; the tarp was dislodged and one of the straps was cut.
Henneberry decided to get a ladder to investigate.
After climbing the ladder to look inside the boat, Henneberry saw a pool of blood and what he thought was a body. It turned out to be that of Tsarnaev.
Henneberry jumped off the ladder, ran inside and called 911. Police converged on the home shortly thereafter, a shootout ensued, and Tsarnaev was taken in custody at 8:43 p.m., less than three hours later.
Below is a crazy video via Barstool Sports showing the shootout:
