Photos released, reward offer continues in St. John’s Church fire

Federal officials have released more photos in connection with a fire set at St. John’s Church, in D.C., amid protests against police brutality last May.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on Wednesday released surveillance pictures of someone they’re looking for and they need the public’s help in identifying the person in connection with the fire at the church, on H Street in Northwest, across Lafayette Square from the White House. The person is wearing a multi-colored jacket.
