(CBS News) BOSTON - We are Boston. We are strong. We are Boston strong.

That was the message of an emotional ceremony at Fenway Park before the Boston Red Sox game Saturday afternoon -- and the feeling throughout the city after the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect #2, in the Boston Marathon bombing.

As of early Saturday evening, Tsarnaev is in serious condition under heavy guard. He is unable to talk to investigators. No charges have been filed yet. Fifty-three bombing victims are still in hospitals, six are critical. And 12 victims are at Beth Israel where Tsarnaev is also being treated.

When a Watertown neighbor saw someone bleeding in his backyard boat Friday night, he called the cops. And when a state police helicopter with special heat-sensing technology spotted the contours of a body in that boat, law enforcement moved in.

After an hour or more of sporadic gunfire, the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, emerged -- a bloody and bowed 19-year-old, lying prone outside the home of Dave Henneberry.

"The tarp from the boat was kind of askew," said Robert Duffy, Henneberry's stepson, "he went over to it, trying to adjust the straps. He realized one of the straps had been cut. At that point, he noticed there was a small amount of blood. He looked forward, not knowing actually what we was looking at. His brain told him there was a body, but he wasn't sure there was a body. At that point he immediately jumped down, called 911."
