A number of Boston Marathon bombing suspects have emerged following Monday’s deadly attacks that has left 3 dead and 141 injured.
According to some reports authorities have a number of people of interest they are investigating; one “person of interest” was reportedly being questioned at a Boston hospital, and another person was being sought who was seen trying to enter a restricted area near the marathon route just 5 minutes before the explosions took place.
The two deadly bombings took place about 12 seconds apart about 100 to 150 yards away from one another near the finish line of the marathon route. It has emerged that medical staff were also pulling ball-bearings from some victims, sparking reports that the explosive devices may have contained ball-bearings to maximize the carnage from the blasts.
The large explosions were initially confirmed to have killed two, with more than a dozen in critical condition. However, the death toll was raised to three on Monday evening, with an 8 year old boy said to be one of those who had been killed by one of the blasts.
Authorities and eye witnesses have confirmed that many of the injuries taking place included amputations.
It was also reported later on Monday that as many as three other explosive devices were found near the finish line, and they were dismantled by bomb squad officials.
