Two explosions occurred near the Boston Marathon finish line at 2:50 p.m. The race was diverted before being halted as police and fire crews swept the area. Another device was found, which was purposely detonated by Boston Police at Boylston Street. Another incident at JFK Library, which was thought to be a fourth-related incident, is now being considered as a fire-related issue by the Boston Police Department. Two people are dead and 107 are injured. >>> This is a developing story.
UPDATE: Arrest made in Boston of suspect ID’d from CCTV video.. TV talking heads got it wrong, again! Actually, hollering ongoing between police bodies as to whether or not someone’s in custody. Cripes.
UPDATE: Live coverage via Reuters in Watertown, Massachusetts, following overnight shootout.
