    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – An apparent explosion has hit the finish line area of the Boston Marathon.

    Witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion near the finish line just before 3 p.m. Video from Skyfox showed a number of emergency crews in the area tending to victims.

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

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

    No other details were available.

    Explosion Boston Marathon #3

    Please continue here. Remember all TOS and do not start conversations that are racist/biased. We don't need to profile, please.

    I will make a separate thread for the Texas explosions that we are just now hearing about.

    ETA: Remember to refer to any/all potential POI by initials. This is a standard rule at WS and in this case, we will be enforcing it because there is just too much potential to hurt innocent people.

    School newspaper twitter...

    https://twitter.com/thetech


    MIT issued an emergency alert at 10:48 on Thursday night reporting shots fired on the university campus. MIT's school newspaper, The Tech, reports, "Shots fired near 32 Vassar St (Stata Center), police officer down. Please stay inside."

    According to comments there it appears it might be related to a 7-11 being robbed.

    They were probably trying to get his family there before he died.

    Terrorist Attack at Boston Marathon #4

    Please continue here.

    Remember NOT to post pictures of innocent people, please. Think about it - what if it was your picture being plastered all over the internet in connection with a terrorist attack?
