Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says the north side is calming after violence in the wake of a police shooting that left one man dead.
The violence erupted a few hours after an officer shot and killed a 23-year-old man.
Police said the man was fleeing a traffic stop and was armed with a gun.
It wasn't immediately clear if he pointed it at or fired it at the officer.As many as 100 protesters skirmished with police in violence that began early in the evening and stretched past midnight.
At least four businesses burned, including a gas station and a bank, and one officer was hurt by a thrown brick.
Police said they made three arrests.
The shooting will be investigated by the state. Barrett says the officer was wearing a body camera.
