On April 15, two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon killing three people. Instantly, federal, state and local law enforcement and counterterrorism agencies needed to share information.
Video surveillance, text and call histories, social media data, photographs and other information were shared along various platforms to pin down the type of bombs used and pictures of two at-large suspects.
By the end of the week, police had captured one suspect and killed another in a shootout.
