An additional 1,500 national guardsmen will join the D.C. National Guard on Tuesday in response to protests in the District against the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The chief of the National Guard bureau confirmed this morning on a call with reporters that national guardsmen from Indiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and now Maryland will be deployed to the District.

Close to 1,300 soldiers and airmen in the D.C. national guard were already deployed to the District on Monday night, augmented by national guard troops from Utah and New Jersey to assist civilian law enforcement efforts in the ongoing protests of police brutality.

On Tuesday afternoon, a number of Humvees were already seen driving through D.C. as additional troops made their way to the city.
