A line of police behind riot shields hurled tear gas canisters and fired pepper balls at as many as 200 protesters Tuesday night to enforce a citywide curfew, imposed after the worst outbreak of rioting in Baltimore since 1968 .The clash came after a day of high tension but relative peace in Baltimore, as thousands of police officers and National Guardsmen poured in to try to prevent another round of looting and arson like the one that rocked the city on Monday.Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said 2,000 Guardsmen and 1,000 law officers would be in place overnight.Shortly before the curfew and in a different neighborhood, police arrested three to four juveniles after people started attacking officers with rocks and bricks, authorities said.At least 20 officers were hurt, one person was critically injured in a fire, more than 200 adults and 34 juveniles were arrested, and nearly 150 cars were burned, police said.The city of 622,000 is 63 percent black.
