Kemp to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops after violent weekend

Gov. Brian Kemp will deploy as many as 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops to protect state buildings in Atlanta on Monday following a burst of violence across the city that left four deadincluding an 8-year-old girl, and saw the ransacking of the headquarters of the Georgia State Patrol.
