April 17, 2013, 2:38 PM — A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday has reportedly been identified and arrested, according to numerous news agencies.
CNN was the first to report that a suspect had been identified in the bombing, which killed three people and left more than 170 people injured. CNN later reported that the suspect had been taken to a federal courthouse.
An FBI spokeswoman in Washington, D.C. told a Computerworld reporter at 2:20 p.m. ET, however, that no arrests have yet been made.
Law enforcement officials now plan a 5 p.m. news conference. That press event had originally been scheduled for early this afternoon.
According to CNN, surveillance video from a local Lord & Taylor store and video from a local Boston TV station were critical to identifying a suspect. Video forensics were expected to play a major role in the investigation.
