BOSTON (AP) — A carjack victim has described his harrowing ride at gunpoint with the Boston Marathon bombers and the moment he made “the most difficult decision” of his life to bolt from the car.
Dun Meng testified Thursday during the federal death penalty trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv).
Prosecutors say Tsarnaev and his late brother, Tamerlan, planted two bombs that killed three people and injured more than 260 at the 2013 marathon.
Three days later, Meng said Tamerlan Tsarnaev jumped into the front passenger seat of his car, pointed a gun at Meng’s head and ordered him to drive.
Meng says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev later got into the car.
Meng says he jumped out of the car and ran across the street when the Tsarnaevs stopped to get gas.
