As Twitchy reported, a tense and terrifying situation tonight as police have reportedly surrounded Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after a barrage of gunfire.

Children were evacuated from the scene. Most reports so far, thankfully, indicate that the children are not hurt.

Another Twitter user tweeting from a couple of houses away reports that he is now hiding in the basement.

We continue to pray for the safety of the police and the innocent civilians in the area.

Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation and update with further developments.
