WATERTOWN, Mass. (WWLP) - The suspect was last seen in Watertown which is why police ordered all residents there to stay home.
Most of greater Boston communities went into lockdown as police tried to find Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the second suspect in the Boston Marathon explosions.
"I've been stuck there at home, because its like in the backyard of our house." Watertown's Sandra Barillot says watching Military and Swat members blanketing her Watertown neighbors homes is an image she won't soon forget. "It's terrifying you know? It's just really scary."
The streets of Watertown were more like a ghost town, most people had plans to work but those plans were cancelled. "Yeah I was supposed to work this morning but I woke up at 5:00 and they said don't drive, so I just kind of hung out all day," said Nick Smith of Watertown.
As residents heed the warnings, law enforcement and media, from around the world, take up their parking lots and side streets, while searching for suspect number two.
People held up in their homes, sat and waited, hoping the end was near. Brian Tiah of Watertown told 22News, "It's sad that it has to affect the whole community. Hopefully they figure out what's going on and it stops."
The stay at home request was lifted around 6:00PM by Governor Deval Patrick at the news conference.
