A mother has been praised for disciplining her son for taking part in the violence in Baltimore that erupted on Monday.
The woman was caught on camera recognising her son, even though he was wearing a black face mask, and berating him for throwing rocks at police.
The mother shouts after her son who she spotted taking part in the rioting
The boy can be seen trying to walk away from his mother, but she continues to shout and slap him for his actions.
The woman has been hailed "Mom of the year" by many on social media, including Fox Business network contributor Charles V Payne.
Hundreds of rioters looted stores, burned buildings and at least 15 police officers were injured following the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after suffering a spinal injury in police custody.
The riots broke out blocks from where the funeral of Freddie Gray took place and spread through much of west Baltimore.
It was the most violent protest against police treatment of African Americans since arson and gunfire in Ferguson, Missouri, last year.
A state of emergency was declared by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, who sent in the National Guard, and a curfew was imposed in the majority black city from Tuesday night, with exceptions for work and medical emergencies.
Gray was arrested on April 12 when running from officers. He was transported to the police station in a van, with no seat restraint, and suffered the spinal injury that led to his death a week later. A lawyer for Gray's family says his spine was 80 percent severed at the neck while in custody.
