Although they have yet to name the suspect, law enforcement officials say they made an identification using two videos shot near the scene of explosions. One video came from a department store. A Boston television station provided the other.

The suspect could appear in court as early as this afternoon.

A law enforcement official who spoke to media outlets on condition of anonymity said federal marshals took the suspect into custody this afternoon and brought him to a Boston courthouse.

Officials have scheduled a news conference for later today.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
