LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Southland and statewide agencies remained on heightened alert Tuesday following two explosions at the Boston Marathon.
At least three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy, and more than 170 injured when two bombs went off Monday afternoon at the marathon’s finish line on Boylston Street.
So far, no terrorist group has claimed responsibility and no one has been arrested in connection to the incident. Authorities did serve a search warrant late Monday at an apartment in Revere, a Boston suburb, where several bags of evidence were removed, officials said.
No connection between the Boston bombing and the Southland has been established. As a precaution, however, extra security will now be added to high-profile events and locations throughout Los Angeles.
