The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is now looking to identify a suspect in a series of arsons that took place during the civil unrest in the Twin Cities.

The unidentified man allegedly set fires at Gordon Parks High School and several St. Paul businesses, according to the St. Paul ATF, which is working with the St. Paul Fire Department, St. Paul Police Department, Minnesota State Fire Marshall Division, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation on this case. 

The same man featured in a series of images showing "persons of interest" in looting and fires that occurred in the city during the unrest last month.

It is unknown whether the man is from Minnesota, a press release says. 

Authorities are asking for people with information to call 1-888-283-8477 or email ATFTips@atf.gov.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
