A full-scale tactical team for the ATF, which took part in the capture of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was activated to investigate the U.S. Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C., the Boston Globe reports.

The team, based in D.C., is among five regional ATF tactical groups stationed across the nation.

The team was critical in the manhunt and capture of Tsareav, who was captured inside a backyard boat in Watertown.

The Boston Globe wrote that team specializes in covert operations, high-risk surveillance, crisis negotiations, arrest and search warrants and home invasions investigations.
