On April 15th, 2013, two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. As photographs of the event spread across news and social media, police scrambled to sweep the site for more explosives. After investigators determined who is responsible for what the White House has called "an act of terror," a massive manhunt began in Massachusetts that ended with one suspect killed and one captured by police.
