Watertown: Police in Boston have released a new photo showing the man believed to be a suspect in the marathon bombings, shown in earlier footage in a white hat. In the new photo, he's wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt pulled up on his head. Police say he's on the loose, and is considered a "threat to "anybody that might approach him".

Police have called him a "terrorist". Suspect No. 1, also known as the "black hat" suspect was taken into custody and later died. The new photo was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the river from the city. "We believe this to be a terrorist," said Boston Police Commissioner Ed David. "We believe this to be a man who's come here to kill people. We need to get him in custody."
