BOSTON (CBS) – As a manhunt was underway for Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Watertown-area residents were ordered to stay in their homes.

Tsarnaev was taken into custody Friday night in Watertown, shortly after the stay-in-place order was lifted.

On Saturday, a photograph of a police officer delivering milk to a family with young children went viral on social media.

By Sunday the photograph had over 60,000 “shares” on Facebook.

Brookline Police have said the officer is on their police force.

Boston Police originally said the officer was one of their own.

There is no word on who took the photograph and the identity of the officer pictured.
