MILWAUKEE -- As tensions simmer in Milwaukee over a deadly police shooting, that city's police chief is blaming activists from Chicago for inciting violence.

Eleven more Milwaukee law enforcement officers were wounded during the second night of demonstrations after Milwaukee police shot and killed an armed African American man. Demonstrators torched cars and at least six businesses. They've repeatedly clashed with police, pelting officers with rocks and debris, injuring several of them.

Milwaukee’s police chief says activists from Chicago have been inciting violence, but Mayor Rahm Emanuel says police should be trying to build trust instead of looking for scapegoats.

For now Milwaukee is imposing a strict 10 p.m. curfew for teenagers until further notice to try to cut down on the violence.
