Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake today lifted the citywide curfew that was instituted after riots erupted Monday following the funeral of Freddie Gray.

The curfew began Tuesday night, a day after rioters clashed with police and set fire to buildings throughout the city. A funeral for Gray, 25, who died in police custody last month, had been held earlier in the day.
