Recreation Pier in Fells Point was built as a storage facility for port cargo in 1914. The building was used as a community center and served as a television studio for "Homicide: Life on the Street."

The two Baltimore teens killed in the East Baltimore row house firebombing that also injured six others early Saturday were Shi-Heem Sholto, 19, and Tyrone James, 17, Baltimore Police said Sunday.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives offered a $10,000 reward — in addition to the $2,000 Metro Crime Stoppers reward — for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Antonio Wright, 26, who police named Public Enemy No. 1.

Police released a surveillance video showing a figure they said was Wright, with two burning Molotov cocktails in his hands, kicking down the door of the home in the 1200 block of Greenmount Avenue and throwing the fire bombs inside.

Six other people were inside the home at the time: two women, ages 38 and 20; two girls, ages 17 and 16; and two boys, ages 11 and 4, police said. The 20-year-old woman remained in critical condition at the hospital Sunday. The other five had non-life-threatening injuries and were treated and released, police said.

With sleet and freezing rain mixing in, projections for snow in Maryland have been lightened, but the storm has still been enough to keep plows and shovelers busy, and officials maintained advice not to travel. A significant coating of ice covered many surfaces, with small icicles adorning trees and awnings.

One-hundred-sixty years after the infamous Dred Scott Supreme Court ruling, descendants of the judge who wrote the decision and the slave whose lawsuit gave his name to it reconciled Monday in Annapolis. Inspired by a fictional meeting dramatized by playwright Kate Taney Billingsley (left), a descendant of Chief Justice Roger Taney, it was the first public formal apology and statement of forgiveness between the families. Billingsley's father, Charles Taney (center), apologized to Scott's great-great-granddaughter, Lynne Jackson (right), at the foot of a statue of Roger Taney (background) that has stood on the Maryland State House grounds since 1872. Jackson accepted, and the families issued a joint statement calling for the Taney statue to remain and be accompanied by a statue of Scott and an educational exhibit contextualizing the court decision, which ruled Congress could not regulate slavery and that blacks could not be considered U.S. citizens.
