CBS News: Possible Suspect In Boston Marathon Bombings Identified

Orr said the FBI determined the time the man was on his cell phone, then went back and scanned all the calls made in the area to track who they wanted to talk to.


As the reports of a possible arrest started to circulate, a crowd started to form outside the federal courthouse in South Boston in anticipation of a suspect being brought in.

Then, the court was evacuated just after 3 p.m.

According to WBZ-TV’s Karen Anderson, a bomb threat was called in.

“Code red, everyone out!” blared over the courthouse loudspeakers, Anderson said, as she was inside the building.

Heavily armed police surrounded the building and bomb sniffing dogs were brought in.
