UPDATE: CNN has retracted its initial claim and said no arrests were made.
CNN’s John King and Wolf Blitzer reported an arrest has been made in the Boston Marathon bombing, and the suspect is being taken by U.S. Marshals to a federal courthouse
A federal law enforcement office source told CNN “substantial progress” was made in identifying a suspect based on two surveillance videos, one being footage from the Copley Square Lord & Taylor that shows the suspect placing what officials believe is the bomb.
The department store was at the site of the second explosion near the finish line of the race.
The Boston Globe also reported the news:
An official briefed on the Boston Marathon bombing investigation said today that authorities have an image of a suspect carrying, and perhaps dropping, a black bag at the second bombing scene on Boylston Street, outside of the Forum restaurant.
Earlier, King reported the suspect was a “dark-skinned male,” but then said he wouldn’t repeat that information until it was confirmed.
An FBI press conference is scheduled for 5:00 pm Wednesday evening.
