Authorities still maintain that they have footage of a man who they believe may have planted the bombs, according to The New York Times. The suspect has not been identified by name.

The FBI had appealed to the public to submit videos, photos and any other evidence gathered before and after the attack at about 2:50 p.m. on Monday.

The Huffington Post's Chris Kirkham was at the U.S. Federal Court House in Boston as it was being evacuated in the afternoon. The evacuation is all clear. He sent the following dispatch at the time:

Federal courthouse scene is one of chaos right now. Have seen lots of people coming out the front door and us marshals are clearing everyone out. They're trying to clear the entire parking lot in front of the courthouse. Hundreds of journalists and spectators are here.
