article imagePhoto of officer bringing milk to kids during lockdown goes viral

A photo of a police officer bringing milk to a family during Friday's lockdown in Watertown has gone viral on Facebook. The officer has been identified as a member of the Brookline Police Department.
An image taken of an officer sent to help with the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was posted to Facebook and Twitter. It has since gone viral on social media.
The photo shows the policeman carrying two gallons of milk. He was reportedly bringing it to a family with young children who were out of milk during the lockdown in Watertown.
The officer's identity was initially unknown, but he has been identified as Officer John Bradley of the Brookline Police Department, according to The Brookline Patch.
The Boston P.D. tweeted out the photo of the "BPD" police officer photo with the caption, “...A family with young children in Watertown was out of milk during the lockdown…”
This initially caused some confusion that the image was of a Boston police officer. The law enforcement agency then followed up with a second tweet that said, "This is a Brookline Police Department (BPD) Officer. Apologies for confusion..Awesome job and photo!!"
While the officer's identity was made after initial reports, it is still not known at this time who snapped the photograph. Brookline, Mass. is a suburb outside Boston.
Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody by police on Friday night after being discovered hiding in a boat on the property of a Watertown home.
