On Monday, soon after an emotional funeral for Freddie Gray—the 25-year-old man who died a week after being taken into police custody April 12—portions of Baltimore erupted into chaos as rioters clashed with police, threw objects at passing law-enforcement vehicles and looted local businesses.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued a citywide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency and called up the National Guard to help restore order.

Images from earlier in the day showed a city under siege.
