Two teens found dead after arson in Baltimore

Posted March 20, 2017

Baltimore City Police have identified 26-year-old Antonio Wright as public enemy number one after he allegedly firebombed a home Saturday morning.

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.

TJ Smith with the Baltimore Police spoke about the incident. At 10:50 p.m. on Thursday, the victim of that shooting ran into the Greenmount Avenue home.

The ATF is offering a $10,000 reward for information regarding the location of Antonio Wright. Both were released from hospitals, police said. The two teens were found dead on the third floor.

Police believe the firebombing was connected to a nonfatal shooting that occurred earlier in the week. Six additional victims ranging in age from 4 to 38 were taken to a hospital.

"We are not sure if the victims were targeted, but the house was", Smith said.

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".

"This was a cold blooded murder", Police Commissioner Kevin Davis told reporters.

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

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.
