By Mike Stone and Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Two gunmen opened fire on Sunday at an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, that was organized by an anti-Islamic group and featured caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad and were themselves shot dead at the scene by police officers, city officials and police said. The shooting, an echo of past attacks or threats in other Western countries against art depicting the Prophet, took place shortly before 7 p.m. in a parking lot of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, northeast of Dallas.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she believed sufficient calm had returned to allow her to end the 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew, which took effect last Tuesday after protests over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray turned violent on Monday. "I believe we have reached that point today." The mayor said the Maryland National Guard would begin withdrawing from the streets over the next week. The surprise announcement on Friday by the city's chief prosecutor that she was bringing criminal charges against the six police officers involved in Gray's arrest has helped to defuse outrage over his death.
