Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been moved from the hospital to the Federal Medical Center Devens, a federal prison for inmates requiring long-term medical care, the U.S. Marshals Service said Friday.
U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Drew Wade released the following statement:
“The U.S. Marshals Service confirms that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is now confined at the Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens at Ft. Devens, Mass.”
The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized medical or mental health care.
Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered during his attempted getaway.
