Baltimore Curfew Lifted, Guard Leaving, 200 Businesses Damaged In Violence


Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake lifted a citywide curfew, the Maryland National Guard began withdrawing its forces and shoppers returned to a mall that had been shuttered after looting amid anger over the April 19 death of Freddie Gray from injuries while in police custody, the Baltimore Sun reports. The mayor and Gov. Larry Hogan agreed the curfew had outlived its purpose two days before it was set to expire. Restaurants, bars and the American Civil Liberties Union had called for an early end to the curfew, which some residents say was unevenly enforced.
