Omaha Police Say No Local Threats Known

Omaha police say the explosions at the Boston Marathon aren't likely to change the security at Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting, which is expected to attract more than 30,000 next month.

Omaha Police Lt. Darci Tierney says there are no threats locally, so police are not making any immediate changes in their approach.

Tierney says Warren Buffett's company always hires private security officers and works with local police on security for the Berkshire event. Thousands of people come to Omaha for the annual meeting, which is planned for May 4.

Berkshire officials did not immediately respond to a message Monday afternoon.

FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault says the Omaha office is monitoring the situation in Boston, but there was nothing Monday to suggest a threat in Omaha.
