Tucsonans who experienced Boston bombing react to new arrests

Tucson - Tucson was well represented on the tragic day the Boston bombing took place. More than 40 people from the area ran in the race and there were countless others there in support of those runners.

Over the last two and a half weeks, people have been trying to understand why the Tsarnaev brothers set off bombs that killed three and injured over 200 people. Word of three more arrests in the case has made Tucsonans who were there, like Christy Sorbe, wonder just how wide the web is going to spread.

"You would almost suspect there would be others involved", said Sorbe. "An attack of that magnitude you would almost expect more fingers, more hands in the pot, because of the complexity of it I guess. Unless these two are just very good at what they do."

Christie Sorbe ran in the Boston Marathon. She says says since the bombing she's had a few nightmares but is trying to focus on the positive and all of the selfless acts she witnessed that day, "I am looking at all of the blessings that are associated with the whole negative event."

Her husband Chris Sorbe was also in Boston with christy that day. He believes there is still a lot we don't know about this case.

"Could five or six people pull this off? I guess if there was some training involved, some sort of coordination probably so", said Sorbe. "But we really don't know a lot about the suspects so we will just have to wait and see what comes out of these arrests."

Chris Sorbe added, he still finds it hard to understand how people who lived what has been described as decent life here in America would want to commit such a horrible act to total strangers.
