BALTIMORE - The Baltimore Ravens have canceled an NFL draft party at their stadium in the wake of rioting in the city.

The event was scheduled for Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens say the decision to cancel the party for their fans came "out of respect to the curfew in Baltimore."

Baltimore's mayor imposed a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew after riots broke out Monday following the funeral of Freddie Gray, who died April 19 of spinal cord and other injuries sustained while in police custody.

The Ravens promised refunds for fans who already bought tickets to the draft party.

Also, the Ravens announced that an outlet sale at the team store scheduled for Saturday had been postponed and will be rescheduled.
