The streets are empty in Boston, which is in the middle of a manhunt. This is what the roads look like in a city on lockdown.

There are parts of the city where men with assault rifles are going door to door, but the streets are cleared everywhere. "It's a police state. Everything is shut down," one resident told the Baltimore Sun. Another resident expressed a feeling of purpose, saying "everyone is following the rules, hoping the suspect is caught soon."

Some think the city looks like the set of a zombie movie, others think it seems ready for a car chase.

People from all over Boston are pouring out pictures onto Twitter and Instagram.
