April 19 (Reuters) - The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was surrounded by police on Friday in the suburb of Watertown, local media reported.

Reuters could not independently confirm the reports, which came after a Reuters witness heard gunfire in Watertown.

The manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, one of two brothers believed to have carried out Monday's attack, took a dramatic turn just minutes after authorities announced they were lifting a shelter-in-place order imposed on the entire city of Boston.

A local CBS station, citing Boston Mayor Tom Menino, said the suspect was surrounded by police. The Boston Globe reported it had also been told by a source that police believed they had located the suspect.
