Over two-dozen people have been arrested and at least 15 officers wounded after a night of riots, fires, and looting in Baltimore.
The chaos in Maryland came after the funeral for Freddie Gray who died from a severe spinal cord injury while being in police custody.
Businesses were looted and damaged while buildings and cars were set on fire across the city.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency and requested every possible resource to be deployed to gain control of the situation.
Col. William Pallozi said over 5,000 law enforcement officials were requested to help lower violence, and 1,500 members of the National Guard have been deployed in addition to the 280 state troopers that provided assistance last week.
Officials report that many of the rioters seemed to be high school students. A mandatory curfew, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., is set to begin on Tuesday night in addition to current city curfews.
Gray’s family said they are against the violence.
“I want y’all to get justice for my son, but don’t do it like this here,” said Gray’s mother while his sister said she thinks the violence is wrong.
