Marathon Bombings Suspect Now in Federal Medical Detention
BOSTON (AP) — The surviving Boston Marathon bombings suspect has been released from a civilian hospital and transferred to a federal medical detention center in central Massachusetts.
The U.S. Marshals Service says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center overnight and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens, about 40 miles west of Boston.
The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care.
Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered during his attempted getaway.
