Firebombing on Greenmount Avenue

…You fought hard and you saved and earned, now all of that is going to burn…


Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it gets worse.


 Jeremy, Greenmount Avenue is the road to Hell in Baltimore. It is the urban extension of York Road, the very road many palefaces have used to flee Baltimore and which was used by white servants or old to escape the pit of despair on the Chesapeake Bay. I did have a dinner date with two ladies at a bar in this neighborhood in 2008. But I had the Slav of Steel, Duz with me. Otherwise I would not have appeared.

Rewards of up to $12,000 are being offered for information about Baltimore's Public Enemy No. 1 in Saturday morning's firebombing on Greenmount Avenue.

Two people died in an early morning house fire in east Baltimore that's being investigated as a case of arson, police said. Baltimore police said they believe Antonio Wright, 26, threw two Molotov cocktails deliberately into the residence.

Police played surveillance video Sunday that showed a person throwing the incendiary devices into the rowhouse just before 5 a.m. in the 1200 block of Greenmount Avenue.

"We were able to get immediate information that an accelerant was used to start (the fire)," Baltimore police media relations Chief T.J. Smith said.

When crews arrived, they were faced with heavy smoke and fire showing from multiple floors of the home.

"Once on scene, units were faced with heavy smoke and fire showing from multiple floors of a three-story dwelling," Baltimore fire spokeswoman Blair Adams said.

During a search of the home, fire crews discovered two bodies on the third floor. Police identified the deceased Sunday as Shi-Heem Sholto, 19, and Tyrone James, 17. They do not live at the residence.
