Neither the public nor the press should jump to conclusions about the bombing at the Boston marathon, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said Tuesday, citing erroneous news reports about Monday's attack.

"So much of the reporting has been wrong, reports of far more than three dead, reports of multiple explosive devices beyond those that were at the scene," Murphy said in an interview with MSNBC. “I just think everybody, including everybody in the press, needs to chill out here. Let the investigators do their work. Hopefully, they have some leads here that are going to get them somewhere, but I think we don't want the public information to get ahead of the private information.”
