Three people died in a fire bomb assault in Los Angeles.
The killing tool is presumed to be a fire bomb or a Molotov cocktail. One victim, though being on fire, was still alive, when firefighters arrived. Unfortunately, the fire squad couldn’t get access to the dying man because of the locked gateway, and the hapless soon died because of numerous burn injuries. During the attempts to save the man on fire, a firefighter got his face injured.
The Los Angeles police representative, Grace Medrano informed that the fire squad received a 911 call early morning on Saturday and rapidly arrived to El Monte, located to the east of Los Angeles. Except the man that died in front of the squad, bodies of two other people were found in the building, that later appeared to be a tire shop.
A man who dialed 911 said that he has seen some men, throwing something that looked like Molotov cocktail inside the building. The suspects left the crime scene soon after throwing the ‘deadly drinks’.
Nobody has been arrested yet, and the fire authorities are carrying out an investigation on the losses after the assault and they are also trying to find out, whether the business was hit by the fire bomb or the Molotov cocktail.
