Former FBI Assistant Director: Bombing Suspect May Have Been Shot And Bled Out By Now

Former FBI Assistant Director of New York and the supervisor of the Bureau’s investigation into the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Bill Gavin, joined CNN host Jake Tapper on his program on Friday afternoon to discuss the present state of the manhunt for alleged Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Gavin said that, in the intense firefight that resulted in the death of suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev last night, Tsarnaev may have been hit and could have “exsanguinated” at this point in a hideout.

Gavin said that, in the firefight between police and the Tsarnaev brothers overnight Thursday into Friday in which an estimated 200 rounds were exchanged, the suspect at large may have been hit.

“My concern is whether or not this young man, the 19-year-old, took maybe a couple of rounds,” Gavin said. “There’s a lot of bullets went into that car and into his brother.”

“I don’t see how he escaped with having none,” Gavin added. “I just wonder if he’s gone to nest someplace and exsanguinated. That would be a concern of mine.”
