Meanwhile, several streets in the Back Bay reopened as law enforcement scaled back the massive crime scene.

Around 3 p.m., Boylston Street, between Massachusetts Avenue and Hereford Street, opened, along with Hereford, Belvidere, and Dalton streets, according to a statement from Boston police.

Clarendon Street will remain open to cross Boylston, but no turns will be allowed ­onto Boylston, police said.
