Several of the Baltimore police officers injured Monday were hit with rocks, sticks and bottles from "what appear to be high school students," Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said.
Just moments ago, this car came flying up this block. I'm saying flying up this block, right into the face of the officers. Oddly, that emergency vehicle over there didn't move. It looked like he was going to ram right into the cops. Nobody fired at him. Nothing happened. I couldn't believe that they didn't move. He then did a U-turn and ripped down the block. And then a series of cars started coming down. I've never seen anything like that in one of these situations -- from CNN's Chris Cuomo.
Another building is on fire in Baltimore
The latest fire is burning at Gilmor Homes, in a mixed-use neighborhood in West Baltimore.
Other parts of West Baltimore now look like a "war zone," CNN's Brian Todd said from the scene. Small fires and looting spilled into Tuesday morning across the city.

Baltimore mayor on the rioting and looting
What we see tonight that is going on in our city is very disturbing. Too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs who -- in a very senseless way -- are trying to tear down what so many have fought for -- Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
I think it’s absolutely disgusting. I don’t know what’s going on in this damn city. These people need to go home, If you don’t belong here, if you don’t live here, you need to get the hell out of the city This city needs to recover. I’ve got firemen in the hospital. I’ve got firemen going inside, they’re cutting hose lines, what the hell’s going on here people -- Rick Hoffman
