Boston Marathon bombing suspect moved to federal medical detention center

| No Comments

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was released from a civilian hospital and transferred to a federal medical detention center in central Massachusetts Friday, the New York Times said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center overnight and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens at decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, about 40 miles west of Boston, the Dallas Morning News said.

The facility is a locked medical facility for male prisoners and treats detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care, the New York Times said.

Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered while he was running from authorities, the New York Times said.

The Massachusetts college student was charged with setting off the shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs that killed three people and wounded more than 260 at the marathon finish line April 15, the Dallas Morning News said.
