Governor lifts state of emergency for Baltimore

BALTIMORE – The governor of the state of Maryland rescinded a state of emergency for Baltimore on Wednesday and all military troops and state police have been pulled out.

Larry Hogan made the announcement more than a week after 2,000 National Guard troops were called into the city when protesters overwhelmed police by throwing bricks and bottles at them. Stores were looted, cars and businesses were burned and nearly 100 officers were injured during the riot April 27. The Guard and state police helped local officers enforce a city-wide curfew for a week.
