Fox News alert on major developments now in the Boston Marathon terror attack Fox News is hearing from.
At least one federal source that a suspect has been arrested.
In the Boston bombings we are also hearing from different news outlets that that person is expected to be in court shortly please bear with us on this folks.
Because the news is breaking.
The sources are coming in one at a time which is never the best way.
It's much better to have multiple sourcing on things like this and yet it is coming from all different news outlets including our own local affiliates.
And her own dot com reporting and so we are trying to bring information to you as -- quickly as we can and yet as responsibly as we can.
So bear with us on a very fluid breaking news situation I -- Megyn Kelly.
We are now awaiting a news conference from law enforcement.
Any moment now we are not sure originally was supposed to be at one -- we were told it was going to be -- until 5 PM eastern time.
And now we are not sure when we are going to get that briefing but we are told to expect it.
We are told that security camera footage.
Shows a young man.
Dropping a bag at the site of one of the explosions we are told the second explosion and then walking away we are told that that that that.
Camera that that tape came from a Lord & Taylor right across the spot of the second bombing.
We are also told by our local fox affiliate you heard the reporter talking about it right there.
That perhaps the identification of this suspect was made based on footage from a local news station.
And our local fox affiliate talking about how they had taken said footage.
Such footage and provided it's a law enforcement here is part of the reporting that we showed you read before the break this is our fox -- just listen -- -- for one minute.
As the video that we shot an hour and twenty minutes before the blast of course you see Lord & Taylor there.
This was just video he was shooting obviously for news coverage that we -- doing in some commentary on the Boston Marathon.
But we have been going through this and looking at it.
The FBI obviously has been looking at a and we do we hear that sources have comb through and said that a television stations video.
Helped and was one piece of the puzzle we had said last night that we provided this hoping that it would be a piece of the puzzle we don't know we don't have any confirmation.
That reporter -- Toledo only knowing that they had provided this to authorities and now there are some reports that an identification of a suspect has been made based on.
One possibly two pieces of video possibly we are told.
Video received from -- app from a television station.
If that is true than this this tape we are looking at now may be.
Important to this investigation we want to get to our chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge.
Live from Washington -- Katherine you know better than anybody.
How information can change.
When it comes in at this rapid fire.
-- and an investigation like this.
Willis religiously -- for people that chain of events today and help them understand why so many dots.
Are now being connected we have a single source here -- Fox News who has -- a foxnews.com a federal source.
That an arrest has been made were looking for secondary sources to confirm that information.
Earlier with in the last two hours we had confirmation.
That investigators have an image of a young man carrying and possibly dropping a backpack at that second explosion site.
And then separately from that earlier today based on a congressional source I was told.
That the National Counterterrorism Center that's the NC TC this is the group that was set up after 9/11.
Can analyze threats against the US -- to avoid the stove piping that led to that attack.
When they brief lawmakers they indicated.
That the video and images that they had received leading up to the attack not -- the attack itself but leading up to the attack.
At -- had provided quote promising intelligence.
So if you start connecting all of these data points what you see is leading to an acceleration.
Focusing -- On what would seem to be.
A suspect -- but again it's a single federal source telling us that arrest has been -- Exactly so we need to be cautious and and we are not the only news outlet.
Reporting this and and other -- -- outlets are citing multiple sources so we'll see how.
How things unfold and in the days to come in the hours to come I should say but at least one.
The person's going to federal court.
