DEVELOPING: The Boston Marathon headquarters has been locked down after two explosions were reported near the finish line, a spokesman told Reuters.
Witnesses reportedly heard two booms near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel that sounded like two claps of thunder.
The Associated Press says there are reports of injuries.

Yeah, a coworker just let a few of us know, we went into our break room which has two TV's, one on CNN and one on FOX (not kidding, had to keep everyone happy), and I would say this is not a coincidence and/or an accident based on what they were saying and showing. Only time will tell, but this definitely comes off as deliberate to me.

As far as I'm concerned, yes, whomever is responsible, they're out to cause fear, which is the definition of a terror attack.
Doesn't matter what individual or group is responsible, it's a terrorist attack.
