6:03 p.m. – Authorities are reporting that the third fatality of yesterday’s bombing is being identified as a Boston University graduate student. A name and age has yet to be released.

3:39 p.m. – The New York State Senate officially started its session, but began with a silent tribute to those lost yesterday.


3:20 p.m. – President Barack Obama is also taking to Twitter after delivering remarks earlier this afternoon.
Describing the incident as a heinous crime, he also noted that on days like today, “there are no Democrats or Republicans -we are Americans, united in concern for our fellow citizens.”



3:14 p.m. – The effects of yesterday’s bombing have even impacted the mayoral campaign in Los Angeles.

The candidates, Eric Garcetti and Wendy Greuel, have suspended their campaigns for the day, but are still scheduled to debate tomorrow night.

2:55 p.m. – Authorities say the person of interest who had been injured during yesterday’s blast is no longer being considered a suspect. CNN is reporting that the Saudi man originally considered to be involved in the attack “was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

His home had been searched last night, but nothing was found.

2:40 p.m. – Two of the three victims of yesterday’s bombing in Boston have been identified as Martin Richard, 8, of Dorchester, Massachusetts, and Krystle Campbell, 29, of Medford.

ABC News is reporting that Campbell died this afternoon after suffering injuries during yesterday’s incidents near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

MetroSource is also reporting investigators believe a pressure cooker might have been used in at least one of the blasts at yesterday’s Boston Marathon.

Pressure cookers have been used in making IED in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, and was used during the 2010 attack in Times Square.
