BOSTON - Federal officials are denying that a suspect is in custody in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Wednesday morning, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press an arrest had been made in the case. But NBC News had argued their sources denied this information. Now the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office in Boston are also disputing reports of an arrest.
A news briefing is scheduled for later Wednesday.
Earlier this week, law enforcement agencies asked the public to come forward with photos and videos that might help with the investigation. Three people were killed and more than 170 wounded Monday after twin explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Several media outlets are reporting authorities have identified a suspect from surveillance video taken at a Lord & Taylor store between the two bomb blasts.
