Boston Marathon Bombing

Boston CBS local live feed.

Reason coverage here.

At approximately 2:50 p.m. EDT in Boston at the marathon, near the finish line, 2 bombs detonated, and police investigated a 3rd, possibly unrelated, incident at JFK library (3rd report is not confirmed related).  There are casualties.

The Atlantic has photos here (one is particularly graphic, more on that photo here of Jeff Bauman Jr.  Thoughts and prayers as he is in critical condition).

A witness, a person of interest?  An apartment was searched and material hauled away.  He’s no longer a person of interest.

The Weekly Standard has many videos (graphic).

A tip line is available for anyone with information at 800-494-TIPS.  If you were there, even blocks away, and have footage or photos, please contact local or federal officials.

Stay strong, Boston. is reporting 3 dead, including an 8-year-old boy, and 170 or so wounded.  There are reports of shrapnel in the bombs, causing a lot of hand and leg trauma.  There were at least 15-20 people seriously wounded, some in critical condition, so the number could rise.

***In addition to Martin Richard, 8, the identity of a second victim, Krystle Campbell, 29 has been confirmed. Lu Lingzi, a Chinese exchange student in her early 20’s is suspected to be the third casualty.

Bombs in pressure cookers, possibly with ball-bearings and other materials, inside backpacks, not in trash cans.
