Suicide Bombing Suspected in Nashville Explosion

The suspect in Nashville’s downtown Christmas Day bombing may have been killed in the explosion, CBS News reports. DNA tests are being done on the remains found at the scene to determine if they belong to the suspect. Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, a Nashville-area resident, had a similar make and model RV as the one that exploded on Friday.

Authorities said there’s “no indication” they’re looking for another subject in the case. “The first thing I want to reiterate is that we have no indication of any additional explosive threats… no other devices were discovered during a secondary sweep yesterday,” said FBI agent Doug Korneski. The blast occurred at 6:30 a.m. local time after a computerized voice from a parked RV urged people to evacuate, warning that the vehicle would explode in a few minutes, CNN reports. The explosion left three people injured, set other vehicles on fire, destroyed several buildings on the block and knocked out wireless service in much of the region. Among questions investigators are trying to answer is whether the AT&T transmission building that sustained damage in the blast was the target of the explosion.
