Around 11:30 a.m., Massachusetts State Police explain that the brothers suspected in the bombings had been in the Honda before they carjacked the Mercedes SUV. For a while, each drove one of the two vehicles, but then ditched the Honda and reunited in the Mercedes.

Around 12:35 p.m., state police in Watertown say officers are searching door to door but still have not found the bombing suspect.

Around 6:30 p.m., Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announces that mass transit is resuming and the "stay indoors" order is being lifted even though one suspect remains on the lam. State police say that suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, fled on foot and there is indication he has a vehicle. They believe he is still in the state because of his ties to the area.

Around the time the order is lifted, a flurry of gunfire breaks out in the same community that was being searched. Law enforcement officials locate Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a boat parked behind a home.

• Around 8:45 p.m., Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is taken into custody by police.
