ATF seeks 5 possibly connected to City County Building firebombing

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has released photos of five people who they say could be connected to the fire bombing early June 24 of the City County Building in Madison.

ATF also is offering an additional reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification of more people in relation to the recent fire-bombing at a downtown Madison government building late last month.

According to a news release, ATF and its local and state partners believe more individuals, either participated in or have information related to the June 24 fire-bombing at the City County Building, located at 211 South Carrol Street.

ATF issued a reward notice shortly after the incident occurred, calling for the identification and apprehension of a man suspected of carrying out the fire-bombing.

With help from the public, law enforcement was able to identify that individual. However, new details have emerged, causing authorities to seek identities of additional people who were in the downtown area in the early morning of June 24.

“We are thrilled with the amount of response we received related to our previous reward,” said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jon Ortiz, of the ATF St. Paul Field Division in the news release. “Now we need the public’s help to identify these five individuals. This was a dangerous incident that put a number of lives at risk. The public’s safety and their ability to call 911 for help should never be put in jeopardy. We believe these people may have information from that morning that can help us better understand what happened and who might have been involved.”
