Update, 2:25 a.m. Eastern: The Boston Globe reports the situation unfolding Watertown has resulted in one Boston Marathon bombing suspect being captured, and one on the loose. Click here for live updates, as the situation unfolds with new photos released by the FBI after 2 a.m.
- One of the more extraordinary details from the suspect photo release collided with the one of the most heartbreaking stories of the Boston bombing saga by way of Bloomberg News on Thursday night. Jeff Bauman, the young victim depicted in the instantly iconic photo of the aftermath, helped the FBI identify one of the suspects when he woke up in the hospital. Asjylyn Loder and Esmé E. Deprez report that Bauman saw the suspect drop a bag at his feet two-and-a-half minutes before it exploded. "He woke up under so much drugs," Bauman's brother Chris told Bloomberg News, "asked for a paper and pen and wrote, 'bag, saw the guy, looked right at me.'"

- The New York Times published a high resolution photo late Thursday night showing Suspect 2 taking a right on Fairfield Street. The photo first surfaced via Reddit, and some suspected that it had been Photoshopped. The suspect is the man in the white hat, believed to be the only one of the two suspects authorities have footage of dropping a backpack thought to be an explosive device, and the photo surfaced on Facebook Monday.
- The cable news network all cut in live in the 1 a.m. hour after FBI presence and lots of police descended on a scene in Watertown, Massachusetts, after a killing at MIT. Much more here.
- In a shocking and long awaited development in a terror investigation that has gripped a nation and the world, the FBI on Thursday evening released 11 photographs and a video of two "suspects" in the Boston Marathon bombing — men with backpacks investigators say planted the explosives within minutes of Monday's blasts, men who don't appear to fit the picture painted by at least one TV commentator as a "dark-skinned male." They are "armed and dangerous," and the authorities need you to help find them.
