Amid the violence that followed Freddie Gray’s funeral, federal agents say people gathered at Pennsylvania Ave. and North Ave. used “incendiary devices” made from looted materials to start at least four fires.

On Thursday, the ATF released pictures of the people believed to be responsible, and offered a $10,000 reward for information that leads to their whereabouts.


Amid their investigation, the ATF said investigators ruled seven building fires as arsons. This includes confirmation that the large fire at the East Baltimore senior apartment complex known as the Harvin Center was intentionally set.


The locations of the fires are as follows:

  • CVS Pharmacy, 2509 Pennsylvania Ave.
  • CVS Pharmacy, 2560 W. Franklin St.
  • Rite Aid Pharmacy, 300 N. Martin Luther King Blvd.
  • Papa Palace Pizza and Subs, 2426 East Monument St.
  • Harvin Senior Center Apartments, 1600 N. Chester St.
  • Cash USA Pawn, 2109 W. Pratt Street
  • Fireside North Liquor Store, 2201 W. North Ave
