A Baltimore pizza shop owner said rioters doused him with lighter fluid and attempted to set him on fire. Essam el Chamman has been making a living selling pizzas at the Papa Palace for the last eight years.
As the rioting got worse the shop owner attempted to close up and make a run for his car when both him and his vehicle were doused with lighter fluid and then the rioters tried to set him on fire.
Essam states that the experience will not scare him out of business, rather he’s just going to give himself the protection the police denied him, he’s going to buy a gun.
