People sweeping up the streets are reflected in the broken window of a check cashing store in Baltimore, Maryland, April 28, 2015.  Riot police and National Guard troops stood guard on the smouldering streets of Baltimore Tuesday after protesters incensed by the death of a young black man in police custody went on the rampage, torching cars and buildings and looting stores. Fires continued to burn in the mainly black northeastern city, where a curfew was set to take effect Tuesday evening after a day of riots that dragged on into Monday night. The state of Maryland declared a state of emergency after rioters ransacked shops, making off with armloads of merchandise. Schools were closed Tuesday a safety measure.
