Donohue also commented this week on the jury’s decision to give the death penalty to convicted Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

“Just over two years after the events that impacted us as a community and a nation, we can finally close this chapter in our lives. The verdict, undoubtedly a difficult decision for the jury, gives me relief and closure as well as the ability to keep moving forward,” he said.

Donohue was hit by a stray bullet during the battle between police and Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan on April 19, 2013. A bullet hit his groin, severing his femoral artery, and he almost bled to death.
