BOSTON - A Marquette grad who lives in Boston was at the finish line when one of the bombs exploded.

"I think everyone just wants to know who did it,” said John Pinkham, a 2011 Marquette Grad. “I think everyone is just angry and upset right now."

Pinkham was at a marathon party when someone took photos at a nearby party.

"We just heard panic downstairs and the windows were shaking,” he said. “The building shook. Smoke was flying in through the windows. Then someone screamed 'fire escape.' We all rushed to the back, jumped out the fire escape and escaped to an alley."
