Doctor details Boston Marathon suspect’s injuries

BOSTON (AP) — The surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect suffered multiple gunshot wounds including one to the face, a skull fracture, and various other injuries when he was captured hiding in a boat in a Watertown backyard, according to a doctor who treated him.

The injuries were described by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s Dr. Stephen Ray Odom in an April legal proceeding at the hospital three days after the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Transcripts of the testimony were unsealed Monday.

The Boston Globe reports that Odom described the most severe injury as a gunshot to the face that "appears to have entered through the left side inside of his mouth and exited the left face, lower face."

Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to the April 15 bombing.
