Baltimore City police have identified a man they believe firebombed a house in East Baltimore killing two teens and injuring six others.
Antonio Wright, 26, of E. Preston Avenue has been named Public Enemy #1, and has yet to be arrested.
Wright deliberately threw two Molotov cocktails into the home, according to police.
Fire fighters extinguished the fire and found the bodies of two teenagers inside the dwelling. Both were pronounced dead on the scene by medics. Six additional victims were taken to an area hospital for treatment.
