Absolutely awful news out of Nashville this morning.
An RV bomb exploded in downtown Nashville early this morning, and thankfully, only a few of injuries were reported, none of which were critical.
Still a pretty terrifying Christmas morning by any standard, but now police are working to piece the case together, determine the culprit, the motive and more.
According to CNN, Metro Nashville Police Department responded to a call of gunshots in the early morning when they found a strange RV parked in front of an AT&T transmission building on 2nd Avenue North.
The RV was playing a recorded message that said a bomb was going to explode. And while no evidence of gunshots were present, multiple witness recalled hearing them. Police called in the bomb squad to investigate the RV who were in the process of responding when the RV exploded.
A nearby security camera captured the blast:
“We do believe this to have been an intentional act,” said police Chief John Drake. “Significant damage has been done to the infrastructure there on 2nd Avenue North.”
No known threats were in Nashville at the time, however Memphis-area FBI will now be taking over the investigation.
Aerial footage shows some of the damage on 2nd Avenue.
