A man wearing jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt leaves his Brooklyn apartment on a Sunday night. About 10 minutes later, he fills a gasoline canister at a service station.

Ten minutes after that, he walks into a new L.G.B.T.Q. nightclub in the Bushwick section. Over the next few minutes, he splashes gas around a passageway and a lounge area as a bartender and another employee go about their business, unaware of what is happening nearby.

He throws a lit cigarette to the floor and walks off. When it fails to ignite, he tries again with what looks like a lighter.
