Looter Killed; 724 Held as Riot Spreads

DETROIT — (Monday, July 24, 1967) — Governor Romney called in the National Guard and clamped a state of emergency on Detroit Sunday night in an attempt to quell spreading Negro sniping, burning and looting that broke out in the Twelfth and Clairmount area on the city’s west side.

Tanks, Jeeps and 2 1/2 ton trucks moved in ahead of infantry units to clear a sealed-off area bounded by W. Grand Blvd., Chicago, Linwood and the Lodge Freeway.

The state of emergency — a step just short of martial law — was ordered by the governor at 9:05 p.m., amid of reports of sporadic rifle fire throughout the city. Three looters were wounded early Monday, one fatally.

When the emergency order was issued, more than 800 stores had been looted, more than 200 persons were arrested and hundreds had been treated in hospital emergency rooms.

At 1 a.m. Monday, Police Commissioner Ray Girardin said a total of 724 persons  had been arrested. This included 600 adults and 124 juveniles. The charges ranged from breaking and entering, through felonious assault to curfew violations.

After 17 hours of rampaging by Negroes, triggered by an early-morning police raid on an illegal after-hours liquor spot, the area was a shambles of shattered and demolished stores and blazing buildings.
