Law enforcement officials in Boston tell reporters that they may have identified the suspect thought responsible for Monday’s deadly b0mbing and he may have already been arrested.

Law enforcement officials in Boston tell reporters that they have arrested a suspect thought responsible for Monday’s deadly b0mbing.

CNN confirmed the news at 1:45 p.m. local time shortly after a local TV station said an arrest had either already occurred or was about to take place.

“#BREAKING: According to @WuWCVB, an arrest in #BostonMarathon b0mbing is imminent or has already taken place,” WCVB-TV tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, CNN reported shortly after 1 p.m. that a suspect has apparently been identified. The suspect’s name has not been made public as of this time, but he is reportedly a dark-skinned male, according to police.

According to CNN’s sources, surveillance video from a Lord and Taylor department store and a local television station are believed to have helped authorities identify the person sought responsible for Monday’s incident, which US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday is being investigated as an act of terror.

CNN’s John King reports from Boston that the video footage helped police narrow in on a person being considered a suspect in the attack “to such detail, I’m told, that they believe they have a clear identification, including a facial image of a suspect.”

The footage, sources say, show the suspect carrying and perhaps placing down a black bag that is thought to have contained a b0mb that was detonated at the second of two crime scenes near the finish line of the annual Boston Marathon just before 3 p.m. on Monday.

The mayor of Boston, Massachusetts has confirmed that a suspect was ID’d, and officials are expected to speak to the press at 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. According to sources speaking to the Boston Globe, authorities may publicize their findings at that briefing.

Because a dark skinned male pretty much engulfs all minorities.

What would be the preferred description? We don't know his nationality by looking at him. If he was white, we'd say white male, if he was black we'd say black male, etc.

Or maybe because I'm not racist I just a$sumed it wasn't meant in a racist way. That may be too big of an a$sumption in this country, though.

He had a more detailed description, he just chose not to disclose it because sometimes information is wrong. Black people can be dark skinned. Hispanics can be dark skinned. Indians can be dark skinned etc. The only people who can't be dark skinned are white people. A dark skinned male is a vague reference that just happens to not be applicable to the largest racial group in the country

It was meant to be racial, but that's why people take offense to it. Police has used vague descriptions like this before to justify racially profiling every single minority group.

Makes sense then, should have given the full description or none at all.

The proper way would not have announced anything about skin color until they had a picture to match. But you know how some people get down though

I wonder how they found this person, without releasing his picture to the public to help identify him.

They identified him placing the bag through videotape, but how do they know WHO it is.
