BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut - There is new video of a man wanted for setting fire to a Connecticut store on two separate occasions.

The video from last Friday shows the arson suspect lighting a shelf on fire at Sunshine Kitchen and Deli in Bridgeport.

Police say three days earlier, the same man used gasoline to light the outside of the building on fire before fleeing the scene.

In the second incident, authorities say an accomplice was involved.

Both fires were quickly extinguished, and the damage was minimal. Some singed merchandise still sits on the shelves, for sale.

The store's owner says he does not have any problems with anyone in the neighborhood, and he doesn't know who is targeting him or why.
