What we are watching: NYC steps up security following terror attack

By Karli Regalbuto

Cement barriers, aerial surveillance, snipers and extra officers protected marathon runners days after the terror attack in New York City. The governor emphasized the leap to increase security as just a precaution.

The FBI is looking into suspect Sayfullo Saipov’s past and other people he could have been working with. The investigation has already found connections between Saipov and people who have drawn law enforcement's attention.  

Last Tuesday, eight people were killed and about a dozen injured when a truck drove down a bicycle path in New York City. Police shot Saipov as he exited his truck. Inside the truck, there were notes referencing the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
