Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called in the National Guard to restore order Monday night in west Baltimore. Protests had turned violent just hours after a funeral service was held for Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died from a spinal cord injury while in police custody. Fifteen police officers were injured, and there were at least 25 arrests.

We look at the latest from Baltimore.
