Boston Bombing Suspect Released From Hospital

BOSTON (April 26, 2013)--Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the sole surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect, was in a federal medical detention center Friday in central Massachusetts after his release from the hospital.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday that 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.

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.
