Person Of Interest Identified In Downtown Nashville Explosion

Federal investigators have identified a person of interest in a downtown Nashville bombing on Christmas morning, according to CBS News.

The FBI utilized Google Maps to find a similar looking camper to the RV used in the blast in the Nashville area backyard of Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, per CBS homeland security correspondent Jeff Pegues. Google Maps indicated the picture of the RV was taken in May 2019, CBS reported.

Federal agents were performing “court authorized activity” at a location on the 100 block of Bakertown Road, an FBI spokesperson told Natalie Neysa Alund of USA Today.
“Neighbors said an RV similar to the one in the explosion was parked at the home within the last two weeks,” Alund added.

Police responded to a call of shots fired Friday around 6 a.m. in downtown Nashville. “Instead, they found an RV with clothes and blinds covering the windows,” CBS reported. “Shortly afterward, the warning of an imminent bomb started blaring and an explosion rocked the area at about 6:30 a.m.”

The blast took place in front of the AT&T building, leaving thousands in the area and some surrounding states without service.
