Police release security camera photos in hunt for Lynn sports bar firebombing suspect

State Police today released security camera images of a “person of interest’’ they are seeking in connection with last month’s firebombing of a Lynn bar.

In a poster authorities plan to circulate to both law enforcement and the public, three images depict a man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a dark baseball cap while sitting at the bar of the Players Sports Bar in Lynn on Dec. 20.

According to State Police, the man depicted in the images got into an argument inside the bar shortly before closing time. Patrons said his name was Vincent and that they believed he lived in the Revere area, State Police said.
