LMA—The two brothers who are the suspects in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing both were treated after their arrests at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).

One of the brothers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was pronounced dead at the hospital early in the morning of April 19 after being shot and run down by a vehicle, reportedly driven by his sibling, during a police shootout in Watertown.

The surviving brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured later that day and treated at BIDMC for serious gunshot wounds. He was formally charged with the bombings in his BIDMC bed and was interviewed there by federal authorities. He later was moved to a prison hospital.

BIDMC had a heavy security presence for some time and attracted a number of national television news crews.
