BOSTON (CBS) - The Moakley Federal Courthouse has been evacuated because of a bomb threat.

Karen Anderson from our sister station WBZ-TV was inside the courthouse when she was told to evacuate. Guards were reportedly calling the evacuation, "code red."

Sources tell WBZ-TV a bomb threat was called into the courthouse.

A large crowd of media and civilians were gathered outside the courthouse after reports an arrest may have been made in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings.

The State Police, FBI and Boston Police have since said no arrest has been made.

The crowd has been moved about 100 yards away.

The police presence includes Homeland Security, police vans, and Boston Police.
