With a manhunt underway on Friday for Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Watertown residents were ordered to stay in their homes.
But there was a lot of compassion during those tense hours.
A photo of a police officer delivering milk to a family with young children during the lockdown has gone viral. The officer's identity was at first unknown, however he was later identified by the Boston Police Department as Brookline Officer John Bradley.
Boston Police tweeted the photograph saying:
