Reno Institutes Curfew After City Hall Breach

RENO, Nevada (AP) — City officials in Reno instituted an immediate mandatory curfew Saturday night after protesters broke windows at City Hall and set fires.

Police fired tear gas into the building, the Rene Gazette-Journal reported, and a SWAT team arrived to help disperse the crowd.

The fires were extinguished. In announcing the curfew in a statement, city officials asked residents to avoid the downtown area, where a "heavy police presence" would be in force overnight.
