Anti-police riots erupted across parts of Baltimore, Md. on Monday following the funeral of a man who died last week while in custody.

Estimates of the damage are not yet known, but are already expected to be well into the millions.

The situation has quieted down as of Tuesday morning, after the National Guard was called in to control the crowds, and the city is beginning the long cleanup process. In the financial services industry, T. Rowe Price Group and Legg Mason, both based in Baltimore, said their headquarters would remain closed Tuesday because of the riots.

“We are going to be out in massive force,” Major General Linda Singh, adjutant general of the state’s national guard, said in a televised news conference, according to Bloomberg, adding that there are "hundreds" of troops currently on the ground in the city.

Here's a look at some of the destruction and the aftermath.
