Patrick: Bombing Suspect Seriously Hurt But Stable
BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is in serious but stable condition.
Patrick spoke outside Fenway Park after appearing in a pregame ceremony at Saturday afternoon’s Red Sox game.
Two bombs exploded at the finish line of Monday’s Boston Marathon, killing three people. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was killed during Thursday night’s manhunt. More than 180 people were injured in the explosions.
Twenty-six-year-old suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed Friday. His brother, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured later Friday inside a boat parked in a Watertown backyard after a furious search. He is recovering at a Boston hospital guarded by armed officers.
The governor declined to comment on the investigation.
