  • Row home fire on Greenmount Ave

Davis believes the firebombing was related to a non-fatal shooting on Thursday night in the same area. Police say he threw two Molotov cocktails into a home early 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.

Crews were dispatched just before 5 a.m.to the 1200 block of Greenmount Ave.

Smith said that five of the six who were injured have been released from the hospital, including the 4-year-old and 11-year-old.

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

Smith says investigators believe that the firebombing was in retaliation for the shooting. Police said neither lived at the Greenmount Avenue house. They are seeking Antonio Wright, 26, as their prime suspect in the firebombing. Wright, described as 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, is wanted for murder. "Whoever did this potentially could have killed eight people".

"Antonio Wright is public enemy number one", Davis said. "Society hopes he rots in jail", Davis said. "We've never done it alone", he noted, adding that community and federal partners were essential. An ATF spokesman said the case centered around what appeared to be a "premeditated, evil crime" but said he could not comment on the evidence due to the preliminary state of the investigation.

The ATF added $10,000 to the reward at a news conference at police headquarters Sunday afternoon.
