BOSTON (AP) — A federal courthouse in Boston has been evacuated amid conflicting reports that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is in custody.

Attorney Francis DiMento says he was in a hearing when someone came over the loudspeaker and announced a "code red" and told everyone to get out in a hurry.

Crowds of reporters are gathered outside. The FBI and the U.S. attorney's office in Boston say no arrests have been made.

The courthouse has a day care attached and at least one crib was wheeled out.
