    I just want to take a moment to caution those with weak stomachs or those that have a hard time shaking images from their mind that many of the pictures being shown online are extremely graphic. Use caution when opening pics on Twitter and Instagram.

    That said, we live in an amazing time for live updates, pictures and immediate first hand accounts. This is the first time I've heard of a major "event" (for lack of a better term) online before it being reported on the news. And I had the news on at the time!! Thoughts and prayers with all of you. Another terrible tragedy in the land of the free.

    Fox News is confirming they are guarding a suspect with severe burns. Not sure if a perp or victim.

    If this turns out true, my guess would still be a home-grown type terrorist, not part of a larger group.

    They're saying the runners are being bused to the Boston Common. The phone number they're giving is 617-635-4500.

    Why would they be guarding a victim?

    I'vebeen pacing around my house for the last hour & a half trying to accountfor everyone up in and around Boston... no easy task with friends at the Sox game, at the Marathon and living in the area. Cell service down and spotty. Have the scanner on but that's up and down.
    My heart is broken watching this terror unleashed on this beautiful city, normally so safe and such a wonderful weekend to be in town.

    My thoughts are with everyone who is impacted, especially our WS members' family and friends in the area and the first responders and LE personnel who are doing the most heroic and dangerous work right now. Prayers to them all.

    How would it be home grown if it is in fact true that he is foreign national?
    Home grown refers to those grown right here in US, I presume.

    If his injuries are suspicious for being involved and he's not conscious.
