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.READ MORE: Man And Woman Shot To Death In Gardena
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.
