Firebombing suspect's surrender broadcast on Facebook Live
BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- It’s not just the man once dubbed Public Enemy #1 claiming he is innocent, family members of those whose home was torched over the weekend also question Antonio Wright's guilt.
ATF agents searched the home of Wright's wife early Monday afternoon.
Hours later Wright was surrendering to police less than a block from where the fatal firebombing happened.
Wright surrendered on Facebook Live at the corner of Biddle and Greenmount.
Police believe the violence may date back to last year when a shooting occurred that wounded a 3 year old. Police say Wright contacted them about surrendering.
Eight people were inside the home when it was torched over the weekend; two were killed and six were injured, one of whom remains in the hospital.
Video released by police show a person throwing Molotov cocktails into the home.
Isaac Silver lives a few doors down is related to the family firebombed.
He says, “I watched it over and over, then I had to stop because it was hurting my heart.”
