Scenes From Inside a City on Lockdown

Scenes From Inside a City on Lockdown

Boston area residents are holding their breath this morning while law enforcement searches for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. Social media was filled with images of an empty downtown and law enforcement filling residential streets.

This photo was widely circulated, of a strangely deserted Kenmore Square.

Boston magazine's Jason Schwartz posted a similar picture of Massachusetts Avenue.

Steve Brown of WBUR observed a bomb-sniffing dog near South Station.

Billy Baker of the Boston Globe posted this picture of a backyard in Watertown, the suburb at the focus of the search.

Reuters also shot some photos of the scene in Watertown.
