Boston bombings

Joe Berti

Joe Berti has had an unbelievable week. And one in which he’s counting his blessings that he's alive.

On Monday, Berti finished running the Boston Marathon minutes before the bombs went off. His wife, Amy, was standing near the finish line, yards from the first blast. Two days later, as he drove from Dallas to Austin, he saw – and photographed – the explosion in the Central Texas town of West.

The city of Boston and surrounding suburbs are locked down as hundreds of law enforcement officers bear down on the one living suspect. PBS NewsHour is covering the story live.

Fox Boston reports a high-ranking official confirmed the photo released by the station does show the suspect the FBI has identified in the Boston Marathon bombings. Fox 25 released the photos ahead of an FBI press conference. Anyone with leads on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324) and choose prompt 3.
