In a statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked media to verify their information through official sources only.
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.
According to the Boston Globe there is an image of a suspect from video shot near the scene of where the second bomb went off.
