(AP) — The mayor of Los Angeles says he will not place the nation's second-largest city under curfew again starting Thursday night.

Mayor Eric Garcetti made the announcement after the curfews were put in place since last week as a precaution against looting and violence.

Earlier, the Los Angeles County sheriff said he will not enforce a curfew in areas his deputies patrol. Curfews also ended in San Francisco and San Jose.

The decisions follow generally peaceful conduct at demonstrations. Some California cities like Oakland and Sacramento plan to maintain tjheir curfews for now.
