Sen. Marco Rubio said he was “disturbed and saddened” by the bombings in Boston Monday afternoon.

The Republican from Florida issued a statement after the double bombing that killed three people and injured more than 100 people during the Boston Marathon.

“I am disturbed and saddened that anyone would ruin this day of celebration by targeting innocent people and murdering them in cold blood,” Rubio said. “Once it is determined who is responsible, justice must be served to the fullest extent possible.”

He also credited the first responders and law enforcement in quickly aiding injured runners and spectators.

President Barack Obama addressed the nation Monday evening after the bombing with a message of hope for Bostonians as authorities search for a motive and the person or group responsible for the attack.

“We still do not know who did this or why,” Obama said. “But make no mistake — we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this; we'll find out why they did this.”
