A teenage boy who was apparently investigated as a possible suspect in the Boston bombings was upset at being identified in photos taken at the scene and circulated in the media, he told ABC News Thursday.

Salah Barhoun, 17, and another male were circled in a picture in Thursday’s New York Post, which said they may be under investigation for the bombing. Law enforcement officials circulated pictures of Barhoun as they tried to learn more about him, sources told ABC.

Officials are no longer investigating Barhoun or the other male in the photo, ABC reported.

Barhoun couldn’t believe his face was appearing on television and in social media.

"It's the worst feeling that I can possibly feel. . . . I'm only 17," he said.

Barhoun said he contacted the police Wednesday to clear his name after he saw pictures of himself on the Internet. He said he simply went to watch the race – one he originally wanted to run – and stayed to watch like thousands of other spectators.

The younger brother of Barhoun, who declined to give his name, said his mother was "sick and upset" that her son's identity was circulated as possibly being connected to the bombings.
