Baltimore Cleans Up After Violent Protests – KWTX
BALTIMORE (April 28, 2015) Residents Tuesday were sweeping up broken glass and other debris from Monday’s violence in Baltimore.
Tuesday morning Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan visited an intersection that on Monday was littered with burning cars. He vowed not to “leave the city unprotected.”
Police with riot shields were blocking some streets Tuesday, and National Guard troops have been deployed.
The rioting was the worst such violence in the U.S. since the protests that broke out over the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
The unrest broke out after the funeral for Freddie Gray, 25, who died of an unexplained spinal injury a week after his arrest.
At least 15 officers were hurt and at least two dozen people were arrested.
A 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew begins Tuesday night.
Baltimore’s mayor’s office said Tuesday there were 144 vehicle fires, 15 structures fires and nearly 200 arrests in the unrest that broke out in the city.
