BOSTON (AP) – Police and reporters have converged on the federal courthouse in Boston — amid conflicting reports on whether a suspect is in custody in the bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 170 at the Boston Marathon.

Several media outlets had reported earlier in the day that a suspect was identified from surveillance video taken at a Lord & Taylor store between the sites of the two bomb blasts.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that a suspect is in custody and that the suspect is expected in federal court. But the FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston say no arrests have been made.
Today, investigators in white jumpsuits had fanned out across the streets, rooftops and awnings around the blast site in search of clues. They combed the debris still left in place from the aftermath of the bombing.
Hospitals in the Boston area report that dozens of people who were treated for injuries in the bombings have now been released.
