Christmas morning explosion rocks downtown Nashville 1


A Christmas morning explosion that rocked downtown Nashville, injuring at least three people and damaging dozens of buildings, is believed to be an intentional act, authorities said.
According to police, officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department were responding to a call of shots fired around 5:30 a.m. CT Friday when they came upon an RV parked in front of an AT&T transmission building at 166 2nd Avenue North.
The RV was playing a recorded message that indicated a bomb would explode in 15 minutes, Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said during a news conference Friday.
Officers saw no immediate evidence of shots fired but they requested the department's hazardous devices unit and started to evacuate neighborhood residents, police said.
The bomb squad was responding when the RV exploded at 6:30 a.m. CT, police spokesman Don Aaron said.
"We do believe this to have been an intentional act," he said. "Significant damage has been done to the infrastructure there on 2nd Avenue North."
Three people were transported to hospitals from the scene, but none were in critical condition, according to Nashville Fire spokesman Joseph Pleasant.

      @pr0xZen however literally we don’t know why warnings were playing but what that effectively does is it makes people fearful which is just another term of terror

      @Joe Smith now what you stated is actually very debatable because let’s say someone was on top of a roof wanting to jump the people on the street would be fearful, scared or even terrified for that person which would effectively become an mode of terrorism even if it wasn’t said persons motives

    • THE SILENT GENT Islamic terroism which is what I believe thier acting like would not announce they were gonna bomb something before they bombed it because the more casualties the better it worked for them. That’s like them telling us they were gonna crash into the twin towers before they did it. Yes that is considered a form of terrorism your correct but I don’t think that’s the what this lady commented about originally.

  5. this sounds like an episode of Criminal Minds or CSI— wth is going on with this world??!

  6. AT&T pissed off employee.

  7. Suspects -> who are the people who are particularly upset right now since the election results. 😉

  8. Last attempts of “stupid” trying to play tough.

  9. “Believed to be intentional” with a recorded warning playing for 15-30 mins prior.

    ” INTENTIONAL ACT ” Is this the phrase that replaces DOMESTIC TERRORISM ?

  11. me: can 2020 get any worse?
    2020: challenge accepted

  12. It seems to me someone is saying ” I can touch you…” Which means the next time there may be casualties

  13. Whoever is behind this, they are testing the public’s reaction.

  14. Just when I thought Christmas would be the one normal day

  15. This seemed like a test run for something bigger by domestic terrorists, possibly trying to keep Trump in power.

  16. “Intentional act”? No! Domestic terrorism!!!!

    Believed to be an intentional act? Oh you don’t say lol

  18. Honestly, this 15 min warning is such a Joker thing… I’m convinced we are stuck in “2020 – the supervillain movie prequel / origin story”.

  19. This looks like a test run for something more serious in the works.

    • This is a follower of a derranged lunatic narcisstic satanic and demonic lososer

    • This is blackmail! Give me power or get hell ! Give him power and hell will stay as part of life

      @Trace McSorley Yes. It’s a threat without terms, which is also what makes this infuriating, because it really takes no sophistication to do this kind of thing. Just a hate and cowardice most people don’t have.

    • Why ? Thats how crazy conspiracy theories start. This could be just 1 crazy man. No proof of anything deeper. Lot of crazy bad stuff have happened only because 1 and only 1 person got crazy in the head.

    • Your comment seems like a test comment for a future comment that will be less obvious

  20. It’s funny how everyone is blaming the right wing for this without any proof lol
