A Boston University student was among those critically injured in Monday's explosions at the Boston Marathon, BU President Robert A. Brown reported this evening.

In an email to staff and students, Brown said he could not provide more details about the injury or the student.

Here is Brown's email:


Dear Friends,
We are still learning about the explosions that occurred earlier today near the Finish Line for the Boston Marathon. We now know that the two explosions at the Finish Line were the result of devices planted at the scene and we also know that additional unexploded devices have been found. Two people were killed and many more seriously injured, including a Boston University student who was critically injured (we cannot yet identify the student). Boston University police have stayed on duty to protect our campus and support Boston and state police.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who have experienced a dreadful loss and those whose loved ones are terribly injured.
Obviously we will work with safety officials to understand as much as we can about what has happened. We are advising all Boston University students to stay in their residence halls and apartments and continue to follow the guidance of the Boston Police Department. All community members who are not on campus should stay home and avoid the immediate area. Please monitor BU Today for updates about University actions that we take as we learn more.
