At least two people died and 22 others were injured Monday after two bomb blasts ripped through the crowd near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Police found two more bombs and disarmed them, officials said. A third blast from a controlled detonation was heard downtown, according to reports.
The marathon organizers announced the source of the explosions, which occurred in quick succession about 2:50 p.m. on Boylston Street near the intersection of Exeter Street, three hours after the winner had crossed the finish line. Some store fronts were blown out.
Bloodied spectators were carried to medical tent intended for runners. Several of the injured had lost limbs, and at least one police officer was hurt.
"Somebody's leg flew by my head. I gave my belt to stop the blood," spectator John Ross told The BostonHerald.
Organizers immediately stopped the race and locked down the marathon headquarters.
The elite women runners started the race at 9:30 a.m. and the elite men followed about 30 minutes later. About 27,000 runners were in the field for the Patriots Day race.

Smoke hung over the neighborhood as police cleared the thousands of spectators who had jammed the route.
Kimberly DelGuzzi of Pittsburgh was waiting on Boylston Street for her friend to cross the finish line when she found herself pressed against a building, ducking for cover from the blasts.
"At first, I thought it was fireworks, but then I saw the smoke go up in the air!
