SALISBURY, Md. - One man is now in custody after he allegedly tried to set an apartment building on fire early Saturday morning.

According to reports, around 1:40 AM Saturday morning, officers from Salisbury Police Department responded to the 1000 block of Fairground Drive. Police reportedly met with a resident who advised authorities that a man, later identified as Brandon Jackson, 34, of Salisbury, had threatened to shoot two juveniles before leaving the area in a vehicle.

About an hour later, Police were notified that the subject had returned to the area. When authorities made contact with the suspect, he was in the parking lot reportedly hiding an object. Police say they recovered a bottle of lighter fluid from Jackson's waistband and a lighter from the ground.

An investigation revealed that Jackson had poured a trail of lighter fluid through the stairwells of the building and onto door mats in front of two apartment doors. Police say the trail then exited the building.

Jackson was arrested and now faces numerous charges including with 7 counts of attempted first degree murder, 18 counts of first degree assaults, and 7 counts of reckless endangerment.

Reports say there were eighteen residents inside the apartment building, but no one was injured. According to Police, the Salisbury Fire Department responded and cleaned the area contaminated with the lighter fluid.
