    There appeared to be blood on the ground near the finish line.

    Reuters was reporting that the Boston Marathon headquarters were in lockdown.

    Two explosions at Boston marathon finish line
    BOSTON (AP) — Two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have resulted in injuries.

    Bloody spectators were being carried Monday to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners. Police wove through competitors as they ran back toward the course.

    "There are a lot of people down," said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.

    About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

    "Two huge bangs." CNN

    6 injured, at least. Suggestions of exploding trashcans. Race was underway when the explosions went off.


    What happened to former Centre County DA Ray Gricar?

    This is terrible.

    My local news FB page says "There are reports of victims with lost limbs being wheeled from the scene, more to come as we receive it."

    Trying to find a good map... Doesn't the race end right at about Copley Square? There has to be tons of people there.
