MILWAUKEE — Mayor Tom Barrett announced Monday that the curfew will once again be in effect Monday night starting at 9 p.m.

This is the third night the curfew will be in effect. However, this time it will end a bit earlier at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said that over 100 people were arrested for violating curfew and 37 cars were towed.

The curfew comes as Milwaukee citizens continue to protest over the death of George Floyd.

"Over the past few nights, absolute chaos has been spewing the streets," said Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales. "24 stores were burglarized, and 11 stores were damaged in the city of Milwaukee."

Kenosha County has also declared a state of emergency. The county will be under curfew Monday and Tuesday from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
