Well, somewhere in all of this it said that the officers "tackled" the brother to subdue him. That doesn't lead one to believe he was dead. On the other hand, I think somewhere else it said that they shot him, so....
I'm not sure what you're getting at, but it's a fact that Tamerlan left the scene alive. He died in the hospital.
The ER doctors didn't seem to think he was run over either. How confusing.
Emergency room doctors desperately tried the save the life of Tamerlan Tsarnaev this morning, and said the man was suffering from gun, shrapnel and blast wounds but the 26-year-old bombing suspect did not appear to have been run over.
At Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Brookline, doctors ready to go home at the end of their shifts were told to stay after reports of a gun battle and explosions peaked fears of another mass casualty event around 1:10 this morning, said Dr. Richard Wolfe, head of the hospital’s Emergency Department.
