After a series of confusing reports on April 17, the FBI confirms that no arrests have been made.
HollywoodLife.com spoke to the FBI who tells us:
“Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack. Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.”
Originally, it was reported that a man in a black shirt who was seen running from the scene in surveillance footage was arrested.
“Authorities have an image of a suspect carrying, and perhaps dropping, a black bag at the second bombing scene,” The Boston Globe reports. “Officials are ‘very close’ in the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings. Bombing suspect possibly identified.”
A law enforcement official told CNN that the progress is a “game changer.”
A surveillance camera at Lord & Taylor, across the street from the second explosion site, reportedly provided clear images from moments before the bombings, and a man can be seen running away.
Currently there are no confirmed suspects.
The two explosions occurred at 2:50 p.m. on April 15, near the Boylston Street finish line of the marathon, killing three people and injuring at least 183. Many of those suffered injuries from flying shrapnel, including nails and ball bearings.
