According to reports, SWAT teams, Special Ops, FBI and state police are all on the scene.
The suspect has been pursued by police since he was identified as a suspect on Thursday. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his older brother, was killed in a shoot out with police. A massive manhunt for Dzhokhar has been underway all day today. The city of Boston was shut down all day Friday, with residents advised to stay indoors. In a press conference around 6 p.m., authorities lifted the ban.
Meeting minutes from a 2009 conservation commission list the owner of the house at 67 Franklin as David T. Henneberry.
