CNN is reporting that investigators have spotted a suspect on a surveillance in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing.

According to CNN correspondent John King, a law enforcement source briefed on the investigation says that the suspect is a dark-skinned male. No nationality has been disclosed.

Officials are expected to hold a press conference confirming the details Wednesday afternoon canceled a press conference originally scheduled for Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. after a bomb threat was phoned into a federal courthouse located in downtown Boston. The scare turned out to be a prank, officials later said.

On Monday, two blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed 3 and wounded over 170. Investigators have stated that the bomb was likely a homemade device assembled within a kitchen pressure cooker and concealed in a black nylon bag.
