Boston Marathon bombing suspect believed to be in custody NY Post reports
A suspect believed to be involved in the bombings at the Boston Marathon is in custody, according to the New York Post.
The Post reports that the suspect is a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in the blast, and that the person is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.
Boston Police has said the report is not true and that they do not have a suspect in custody.
CBS News says Boston PD has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to the scenes about 20 minutes before the explosions.
Boston PD confirmed that two explosions took place at about 2:50 p.m. ET about 50-100 yards apart causing multiple deaths. They also say a third explosion occurred at the JFK Library, which is not near the finish line or marathon course.
Boston PD initially said they believed the third explosion was related to the marathon explosions, but they later said it was just a fire. The JFK Library tweeted that it was a fire that was put out and that all staff and visitors are safe.
