A collection of officials including the colonel superidendent of the Massachusetts state police, Gov. Deval Patrick, and Mayor Thomas Menino just gave a brief press conference with relatively few updates on the current situation regarding the Boston marathon suspect #2. They took no questions.

The stay in doors request for the public continues unchanged for the time being.

The colonel superidentent of the Massachusetts state police said they were progressing through the neighborhood door-to-door, street-to-street. Sixty to 70 percent of what they wanted to cover had been covered at the time of the press conference.

They also said more leads have just developed, and there will be a briefing hopefully again later today.

They also announced that, this afternoon, there will be a controlled explosion over in Cambridge, done out of abundance of caution and for safety of law enforcement officials there who need to search.
