    The mayor of the US city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, announced on Monday a 10 p.m. daily curfew for teenagers in response to two nights of violent riots over the death of a black man in a police shooting incident.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) –  On Saturday, about 100 protesters clashed with police near the scene where, earlier in the day, a 23-year-old man with a stolen semiautomatic handgun was shot dead by police. Later that day, the local authorities arrested 17 people after rioters injured four officers, damaged seven squad cars and set six businesses on fire.

    “Parents, after 10 o’clock, your teenagers better be home, or in a place where they’re off the streets,” Tom Barrett said at a press conference, as quoted the The Washington Post.

    On Sunday, the Wisconsin National Guard was put to assist the city police of Milwaukee. Despite that violence erupted again with a 18-year old man seriously injured by a gun shot, four police officers wounded by rocks and bricks thrown by protesters and 14 people detained.
