Two days after alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured following an extensive manhunt, the suspect remains in serious but stable condition at a Boston hospital.

Unable to speak after sustaining injuries to the throat, according to sources, the 19-year-old suspect is “intubated and sedated,” CNN reports.

“I, and I think all of the law enforcement professionals, are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives, because we have a million questions, and those questions need to be answered,” Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick told reporters on Saturday.

The other suspect, Tsarnaev’s older brother Tamerlan, was killed in shootout with police on Friday morning. Tamerlan’s death came after the pair allegedly shot and killed an MIT police officer and carjacked a driver, who they released unscathed.
