New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly  also said the suspects apparently came up with the plan spontaneously after the Boston bombings, as they talked in an SUV they hijacked.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev initially told authorities that he and his brother, Tamerlan, had talked about going to New York City to "party." Further questioning by investigators revealed that they were planning to use their remaining explosives  in Times Square.

Erin Burnett is live at 7pm ET on CNN from Times Square with the latest.
