The 19-year-old suspect was bleeding from several wounds when he was found hiding in a boat behind a Watertown, Mass., home on April 19. The most serious injury appeared to be a gunshot wound that entered through the inside of his mouth and out through the left side of his face, according to newly released court documents.

The Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suffered multiple gunshot injuries — including a bullet to his face — before he was captured in April, court documents show.

The 20-year-old was bleeding from several wounds, but the most serious was a gunshot wound that apparently entered through the inside of his mouth and pierced through the left side of his face, the papers show.

“He has multiple gunshot wounds, the most severe of which appears to have entered through the left side inside of his mouth and exited the left face, lower face,” Stephen Ray Odom, a trauma surgeon who treated Tsarnaev, said in a testimony given three days after the suspect’s arrest.

The testimony, which was unsealed in a Boston federal court on Monday, does not conclude whether the injury was self-inflicted or if he was shot during the encounter with police that killed his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, on April 19.
