BOSTON, MA – Two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Copley Square. The blast, just seconds apart, didn’t give anyone time to react.

Three people are confirmed dead, one of them an 8-year-old boy, and more than a hundred people are being treated at area hospitals.

While people mourn and victims heal, President Obama has vowed to bring those involved to justice saying, “We still do not know who did this or why. And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this.”
