Row home fire on Greenmount Ave

Row home fire on Greenmount Ave

The fire occurred early Saturday morning, and police said that the two who were killed were both teenagers, and among the injured are a 4-year-old and an 11-year-old.

"We believe this is an act of retaliatory violence", Baltimore Police Media Chief T.J. Smith said Sunday.

Smith said five of the six people injured, including a 4-year-old boy and an 11-year-old boy, are now out of the hospital. 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. "And the individuals that were inside the home were apparently targeted".

Smith says investigators believe that the firebombing was in retaliation for the shooting.

The fire is under control and the cause of the fire is under investigation. They are seeking Antonio Wright, 26, as their prime suspect in the firebombing.

Kerala priest stabbed in alleged racist attack in Melbourne church
Vicar General Monsignor Greg Bennet said the priest was doing well in hospital and wanted to get back to work soon. He then produced a kitchen knife from his pants and stabbed him in the neck before fleeing.

Anyone with information about Wright - who is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 190 pounds - is asked to call 911 or text a tip to 443-902-4824.

Davis said they don't have any "hard set criteria" for what classifies a criminal as "public enemy number one", but added that they use that term for "acts that shock the conscience".

Wright is being called public enemy number one.

Baltimore police commissioner Kevin Davis said the designation of public enemy # 1 has been used about 9 or 10 times in the past two and a half or three years.
