Report: Suspect arrest imminent in Marathon bombing

(MyFoxBoston.com) – A source has confirmed to Fox 25 that investigators have identified a suspect believed to be responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing and that an arrest is imminent.

The source said that authorities believe the suspect was caught on camera at Lord and Taylor and that investigators have made significant progress in the case.

It was reported that the suspect could be seen on camera dropping a black bag.

An official told the Associated Press that the suspect was to be taken into custody by federal marshals and taken to a Boston courthouse.

On Monday, terror displaced euphoria at the finish line of the Boston Marathon as two bombs, made from pressure cookers, detonated within seconds of each other.

Three people were killed and more than 170 were injured by the blasts as shrapnel tore through the crowd.

President Barack Obama branded the attack an act of terrorism. Obama plans to attend an interfaith service Thursday in the victims' honor in Boston.

Scores of victims of the Boston bombing remained in hospitals, many with grievous injuries. Doctors who treated the wounded corroborated reports that the bombs were packed with shrapnel intended to cause mayhem. In addition to the 5-year-old child, a 9-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy were among 17 victims listed in critical condition.
