Hunt for the man in black: Authorities search for ‘dark-skinned or black male’ as police guard another potential suspect in Boston hospital Police are seeking a suspect in the Boston bombings who is described as a ‘dark-skinned or black male’ carrying a backpack, while authorities are also reportedly questioning a potential suspect at an area hospital, according to reports.
The suspect at large was spotted at the scene of the twin explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday and he wearing a black sweatshirt with a hood, according to authorities. Five minutes before the first explosion, officials said the person attempted to gain entry to a restricted area and was turned away. Authorities say he may be a foreign national, based on his accent.
Another potential suspect was also being questioned by police at an area hospital Monday afternoon. Several news outlets reported that he is a 20-year-old Saudi national in the country on a student visa.
