Row home fire on Greenmount Ave

Baltimore police are searching for a man they say firebombed a building and killed two teenagers on Saturday, March 18. The shooting victim was not in the home at the time of the fire but he is "related to the house in some way", Smith said. "We know that the home was targeted". Police said neither lived at the Greenmount Avenue house.

At a news conference on Sunday, Baltimore police officials said they thought the firebombing stemmed from a non fatal shooting Thursday night.

"Regardless of who the targets might have been in side that house, Antonio Wright put the lives of a number of people in jeopardy to go after whomever his targets were", said T.J. Smith of the Baltimore Police Department.

The victims who sustained non-life threatening injuries have been identified as the following: a 4-year-old boy, an 11-year-old boy, a 16-year-old girl, a 17-year-old girl and a 38-year-old woman.

Smith said the firebombing was premeditated and "meticulously" planned, from the suspect filling the canisters for the Molotov cocktails to "busting in the front door" to throw them inside. Wright, described as 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, is wanted for murder.

But the bigger problem is some of these psychopathic predators that are out there killing people.

Eight people were trapped inside the flames, and two teenagers died. "It's an act that shocks the conscience". Antonio Wright is public enemy number one.

"We'll make this apprehension with the community".

Due to potential federal violations, the ATF has become involved in the investigation.

"My name is Antonio Wright, I did not commit this crime..."

Antonio Wright, 26, is the prime suspect in the double homicide, and a reward of $12,000 has been offered to help arrest him.
