BOSTON (CBS) – Few people were as close to the Boston Marathon bombings as WBZ Security Analyst Ed Davis, the city’s former police commissioner.

He says after Friday’s death penalty verdict, the city finally has some closure.

“Everybody who has gone through this is going to live with it for the rest of their lives, it does bring back a lot of emotion when you talk about what happened that day,” Davis said. “To see what these two men did, what they methodically and with malice, what they planned and executed, in our city cries out for what I think is a just ending today.”

A jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death Friday for the bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 260 others.

“There’s no joy here,” Davis said. “There’s been way too much suffering and death around this situation.”
