April 22 (UPI) -- During a carjacking, one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings held a gun to the victim's head and said he was responsible for the bombings, according to a criminal complaint filed against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Monday.

Business Insider reports that according to the complaint, which does not specify whether it was Dzhokhar, 19, or his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan, entered the vehicle and pointed a gun at the victim.

"Did you hear about the Boston explosion?" the carjacker asked. "I did that."

The complaint says the carjacker removed a magazine from the gun, showed the bullet inside, and re-inserted the magazine.

"I am serious," he said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged Monday with one count of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and one count of malicious destruction of property with an explosive device.

Tsarnaev could face the death penalty.
