A beer bottle filled with gasoline was thrown through a broken window into Herschel Jones Middle School’s media center Tuesday, authorities say, an act that could have started a fire. 

Inside the bottle, was a green towel that was supposed to act like a wick for the Molotov cocktail, says WSB TV.

Police say a brick was thrown through a door, breaking the glass, before someone tossed the bottle into the room.

“(We’re) not going to tolerate it at all,” Dallas Police Sgt. William Gorman told WSB. “We’re doing everything we possibly can to find whoever done this and take them before the judge.”

Two bottles were thrown, but only one made it into the school. Police say the bottles are being processed for prints and DNA evidence that may be around the mouth of the bottle.

Police have a couple of suspects in mind and they hope the community will talk to them about the case.
