(USA TODAY) -- Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been moved from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to a prison medical center, the U.S. Marshals Service said Friday.

Spokesman Drew Wade said Tsarnaev was transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was taken after his capture on Friday, and is now confined at Bureau of Prisons facility at Fort Devens, Mass.

The center, located on a decommissioned military base 39 miles west of Boston, specializes in handling male offenders requiring specialized or long-term medical or mental health care.

The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston bombings suffered gunshots wounds, including injuries to his throat, tongue and leg, during a shootout with police.

Tsarnaev is charged with the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured more than 260. An MIT police officer was also killed during the five-day manhunt for Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, that paralyzed the Boston area.

Tamerlan died of injuries suffered in a police operation in which Dzhokhar drove over his body in making a getaway.

Separately, the father of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, Anzor Tsarnaev, has delayed his trip to the U.S. and traveled to another part of Russia, according to report by CNN on Friday.

Anzor Tsarnaev was expected to travel to the U.S. today to assist investigators.

The suspects' mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, told CNN that his trip has been delayed indefinitely due to health reasons.
