On Tuesday (April 28), the day after a state of emergency was declared in Baltimore, National Guard troops were positioned across the city in an attempt to quell increasing tension between police and protesters. Monday night's (April 27) riots left at least 20 police officers injured, over a dozen buildings damaged, and over 200 people arrested.
"We're not going to have another repeat of what happened last night," Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said in a press conference. "That's not going to happen tonight."
"We're going to bring whatever resources are necessary, whatever assets are necessary, whatever manpower is necessary to let the citizens of Baltimore know that their neighborhoods are going to be safe," Hogan emphasized.
Monday night's violence erupted just hours after the funeral of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who died from a spinal injury while being held in police custody. On Tuesday, after countless buildings were either damaged, looted, or destroyed, residents gathered to help clean up the debris, and overall, streets remained violence-free.
Baltimore public schools were closed on Tuesday, and a citywide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. will be enforced starting tonight. Schools will re-open Wednesday. Tonight's Baltimore Orioles- Chicago White Sox game at Camden Yards has been postponed.
There are currently 2,000 National Guard troops and 1,000 police officers dispersed in strategic areas throughout the city, deployed to enforce the city-wide curfew.
On Tuesday, President Obama stated: "If we really want to solve the problem, if our society really wanted to solve the problem, we could. It's just it would require everybody saying this is important, this is significant. And that we don't just pay attention to these communities when a CVS burns."
