(NECN: John Monahan) - At about 3:00 am Friday morning, Boston and state police seemed to have left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Drew Wade confirmed in an official statement that Boston bombing suspect  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported to Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens.

Tsarnaev was admitted to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center after being taken into custody by police in Watertown, Mass. Friday night.

"The U.S. Marshals Service confirms that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is now confined at the Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens at Ft. Devens, Mass."

The Federal Medical Center (FMC) Devens is an administrative facility housing male offenders requiring specialized or long-term medical or mental health care.

FMC Devens also has a satellite camp housing minimum-security male inmates.
