Martin Richard's family prays for healing after bombing suspect's capture

Erin Burnett reads a statement from Martin Richard family on the capture of Boston bombing suspect #2.

Statement from the Richard family 

Our family wishes to salute the thousands of officers and agents from the Boston, Cambridge and Watertown Police & Fire Departments, Massachusetts State Police, FBI, ATF, and other police departments and agencies who worked and collaborated around the clock to bring the perpetrators of Monday’s attack to justice.  We also thank the citizens and businesses that shared images and footage with investigators in hopes of advancing the investigation.

It worked, and tonight, our community is once again safe from these two men.

None of this will bring our beloved Martin back, or reverse the injuries these men inflicted on our family and nearly two hundred others.  We continue to pray for healing and for comfort on the long road that lies ahead for every victim and their loved ones.

Tonight, our family applauds the entire law enforcement community for a job well done, and trust that our justice system will now do its job.
