Tragedy struck the Boston Marathon Monday when two explosions went off at 2:45 p.m. ET two hours after the first runners crossed the finish line.
Boston Police announced that at least 23 people were injured and at least two are dead from the explosions. The New York Post reports that 12 people have died as a result of the explosions. The explosions are believed to be bombs found in trash cans.
This was the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, and it took place on Patriots’ Day, which is a Massachusetts holiday.
