7. And what does that have to do with this?

No statement from police yet, but news reports point in the direction of the nutjob believing the studio stole his work or ideas or something.

Police detained a 41-year-old man who is believed to have spread a flammable liquid in the area. Witnesses said he ran into the building screaming, “Die.” He was injured in the incident and taken to a hospital.

A 61-year-old woman in the neighborhood said she initially mistook the suspect for a victim of the blaze. She said she opened the front entrance to her home after the interphone sounded and found a large man kneeling on the ground. Both of his arms had burns and his right leg was on fire. His hair appeared singed. The woman asked the weakened man if he was all right, but he did not respond. She used a hose to pour water on the man.

As she waited for an ambulance, a number of police officers surrounded the man and peppered him with questions about how he entered the studio and why he set it on fire, she said.

The woman said she could not catch much of what the man said, but she did clearly hear him shout, “They ripped me off.”
