Deserted streets in Boston, as the city goes into lockdown

On Friday 19 April 2013 a manhunt took place in Boston for the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the two suspects in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings a week earlier. 

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick asked residents of Watertown, where the suspect was believed to be hiding, and the adjacent cities and towns (Boston, Belmont, Brookline, Cambridge, Newton, and Waltham) to "shelter in place". The entire public transit network was suspended, as was Amtrak service to and from Boston. Universities, schools, businesses, and other facilities remained closed as thousands of law enforcement personnel participated in a door-to-door manhunt.

At around 6 pm Deval Patrick ended the lockdown after the day-long search failed to locate the suspect. An hour later Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was discovered by a citizen and arrested by police
