The Baltimore Police Department is now offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of their "public enemy #1", who is wanted in connection with a fire that killed two people and injured six others.

Antonio Wright has been named "Public Enemy Number One", by the Baltimore City Police.

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

After being wounded Thursday night, police said, the shooting victim ran into the Greenmount Avenue house.

Police say the firebombing may be related to a shooting last week.

Karleen sholto/victim's mother 63227 "We need to value life this gotta stop, it gotta stop", said Karleen Sholton, the mother of Shi-Heem Sholto, who along with Tyronne James, died in the fire. Police said neither lived at the Greenmount Avenue house. Six additional victims ranging in age from 4 to 38 were taken to a hospital.

At the news conference police released video of Wright throwing the two Molotov cocktails in the home.
