Indianapolis imposes curfew after 2 nights of violence

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis mayor imposed an overnight curfew Sunday after two nights of violent protest over police mistreatment of African Americans that caused widespread damage downtown and included several shootings. 

Two people died in shootings, though it wasn’t clear their deaths were related to the protests.

Mayor Joe Hogsett said the 8 p.m. curfew comes after peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd gave way later to unrest and destruction.

The death of Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died in Minneapolis after an officer held his knee on his neck for several minutes, has sparked protests nationwide.
