Watertown resident, Bob Goodman: "This is a very, very tight-knit neighborhood, and we've never seen anything, at all, remotely like this, ever"

On an evening which saw authorities capture the second suspect wanted in connection with Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon, on Friday evening Piers Morgan welcomed a handful of eyewitnesses and experts charged with providing detailed insight into a series of events that marked the end of what had been a week of terror for many Massachusetts residents.

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" via phone, local resident Bob Goodman detailed his emotions:

"It's a situation where we were recovering from what happened on Monday, and then, for some of us who live in Watertown – especially in this neighborhood – it was kind of a re-traumatization of what we had already been through. So, it's been tough."

Goodman lives nearby to where police apprehended 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev, and shared some of his emotions upon seeing an end to the manhunt:

"I feel very relieved, I have to say, I'm still a little scared, but I absolutely feel relieved," Goodman told Morgan. "This is a very, very tight-knit neighborhood, and we've never seen anything, at all, remotely like this, ever."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, and stay with CNN for the very latest in a case that has gripped the attention of the nation, and the world.

    I think the man who discovered the fugitive in his boat should receive an award publicly in recognition of his bravery and civic duty, without which the police might still be searching.

    SHAME ON US – WE DROPPED THE BALL!!! If the 1st bomber was questioned by authorities a year or two ago for possibly terrorist activity (as was WARNED and reported to us by the Russians), then why wasn't he on the radar screen? At minimum, they should have had him in their terrorist database with his PICTURE and listed as living in the Boston area. Then BEFORE releasing the bombing pix to the public they could have compared the bombing pix to the ones in their database (all the people known to have been involved in possible terrorist activity AND to be living in the Boston area). After all how many could that be????? They would have had a match and they could have apprehended (stealth-like) the bombers before anyone else was killed or hurt. The MIT security officer would NOT have been killed and the other police officers would NOT have been injured. It seems to me like we dropped the ball. Really, how good is our anti-terrorist program?????

    If he dies,we might never know all the facts unless DNA connections can be established,and unsure as to what power
    the Feds have to swab him in his state.He needs to live;I suspect–in the US at least–no-one knows anything,and I've
    heard nothing on any history page on hardware of any sort.

    He needs to make it,THEN we'll get to the bottom of this.

    Piers,

    I've been thinking on the New Tax:I shall promote you from Captain Morgan to Custodian Of The Cake.

    If you could arrange for the newly-recolonised two-bit Yanks to collect them from The Ships Of War that would be most
    fruitful and appetizing,like Dundee Cake!

    A strong COLONY is a HAPPY COLONY,a HAPPY-CLAPPY COLONY–oh,I sound like Steve from Mo beating his...em...

    tambourine!(He thinks Sandy Hook could have been prevented by Bible Study,you know.)

    Carry on!

    extraordinary,Piers:'...probably still be a colony of the Brits'.

    WHAT THE DICKENS,PIERS?WHAT IS THIS RASCAL RAMBLING ABOUT?HAVE HIM FLOGGED,PIERS! AT ONCE!

    OUTRAGEOUS!

    HE THINKS BIBLES WOULD HAVE SAVED SANDY HOOK!HE'S A DELUDED OLD MAN,PIERS!AND HE NAMES GUNS!
