The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says there have been no threats or heightened security in the aftermath of a bombing at the Boston Marathon - but that senses are heightened.

Trooper Betsy Randolph says the Boston bombing focuses attention on the scheduled April 28 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Randolph says authorities have always focused on security measures around the April 19 anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing and during the marathon.

Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson says police have always increased security for the race and adds both on-duty and off-duty officers for the race.

Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett says there are currently no plans to call off this year's Oklahoma City marathon - but said events will be monitored daily.
