Posted on Apr 17, 2013
UPDATE: The Boston Globe is reporting that the city’s Moakley U.S. Courthouse is being evacuated.
UPDATE: Per CNN: “There is conflicting information as to whether someone has been arrested in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings. A federal law enforcement source told CNN’s Fran Townsend that someone was arrested. But later, two senior administration officials and another federal official told Townsend that there had been a misunderstanding among officials and that no one has been arrested.”
The Associated Press and the Boston Globe also reported a suspect was in custody.
An arrest has been made in connection with Monday’s deadly Boston Marathon bombings, according to CNN. The report does not identify who the suspect is, or what his or her motive for the attacks was, but CNN says the person was apprehended based on an analysis of two videos.
Three people were killed and at least 183 were wounded, some critically, when a pair of devices were detonated near the finish line of the marathon.
