The curfew runs from 9 p.m. Sunday, May 31 through 7 a.m. Monday, June 1.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers on Saturday called on the state National Guard to help support law enforcement in Milwaukee following protests over the deaths of Floyd and Joel Acevedo turned violent Friday night.
Evers said in a press release that he authorized 125 Guard members to assist after receiving a request from Milwaukee city and county officials. They are worried about a repeat of the demonstration over Floyd and Joel Acevedo, who died last month after an altercation with a Milwaukee police officer.
According to Fox 6 in Milwaukee, more than a dozen businesses were damaged and about 50 people were arrested Friday night into Saturday, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said in a statement.
Amid the curfew, while Saturday was a calmer night than Friday, there were a few break-ins and other issues amid the ongoing protests.
Chief Morales said more than 20 businesses were looted or vandalized Saturday night/Sunday morning, and there were more than 60 arrests. Chief Morales noted only three were people from outside of Milwaukee.
