Here’s Exactly Where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Was Shot


According to a doctor who examined the Boston Marathon bombing suspect to assess whether he could stand before a judge, the bullets fired during Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture fractured his skull, tore into his ear and pharynx, and caused a host of other physical damage, The Wall Street Journal reports. A batch of thirteen documents unsealed on Monday reveal that “one of the bullets appeared to have entered inside the suspect’s mouth and had caused a skull-base fracture and significant soft-tissue damage,” and he sustained “multiple gunshot wounds to the extremities.” Despite undergoing multiple medical procedures (including tendon repair to his left hand) and being on pain pills, the doctor concluded Tsarnaev was lucid and able to respond vocally – something he later proved when pleading not guilty in all 30 counts against him.
