(CNN) — Two bombs struck near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring dozens of others.
A third blast then followed at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, which authorities believe was related, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said. The library itself said that was not yet known.
Figures from three hospitals place the number of injured from the marathon blasts as high as 51. The Boston Globe reported that Boston hospitals report more than 100 people being treated. As of now, two have been reported dead.
The MMA community is affected heavily by this and TNS would like to express its’ prayers and condolences to all those affected by this tragedy. Here is what some of the community is tweeting:
