What happened in the Boston bomber carjacking?

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A federal complaint against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev unveiled more details to the carjacking on the night of April 18, 2013 that ended with one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects dead and the other critically wounded the next evening.

Just before midnight, about seven hours after the FBI released photos of the suspects, a man was carjacked at gunpoint in Cambridge, Mass.

The victim told police that he was sitting in his car on a road in Cambridge when a man approached and tapped on his passenger-side window.

When the victim rolled down the window, the man reached in, opened the door, and entered the victim's vehicle.

The man pointed a firearm at the victim and stated, "Did you hear about the Boston explosion?"  and "I did that."

The man removed the magazine from his gun and showed the victim that it had a bullet in it, and then re-inserted the magazine.  The man then stated, "I am serious."

The carjacker forced the victim to drive to another location, where they picked up a second man.  The two men put something in the trunk of the victim's vehicle.
The man with the gun took the victim's keys and sat in the driver's seat, while the victim moved to the front passenger seat.  The second man entered the victim's vehicle and sat in the rear passenger seat.  The man with the gun and the second man spoke to each other in a foreign language.

While they were driving, the man with the gun demanded money from the victim, who gave the man $45.  One of the men forced the victim to give him his ATM card and the PIN.  They then drove to an ATM and attempted to withdraw money.  They then drove to a gas station in Cambridge.  The two men got out of the car and the victim managed to escape.

A short time later, the stolen vehicle was located in Watertown.  With police in pursuit, they men threw at least two small bombs out of the car and a gun fight began.
