There are conflicting reports about a possible arrest made in the investigation into the Boston bombings.

Earlier today, CNN had reported an arrest had been made.  It’s not clear if a suspect is in custody now, though.

CBS News reports authorities have zeroed in on a man seen on surveillance video near the site of the attack.

The breakthrough reportedly came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source.

More details are coming – we’ll continue to update throughout the afternoon.  A news conference is planned at 4 p.m. central time in Boston.
