According to police, who originally responded to a gunshot that was fired around 5:30 a.m., the recreational vehicle arrived on the street at 1:22 a.m. It was parked in front of an AT&T broadcast building at 166 2nd Avenue North and when police discovered it was playing a recorded message a few hours later that a bomb was about to explode in 15 minutes.
At that point, the officers asked the department's hazardous equipment division for assistance and began evacuating the area.
At 6:30 a.m. CT, the vehicle exploded. "We believe that this was a deliberate act," said police spokesman Don Aaron during a press conference on Friday. "The infrastructure there on 2nd Avenue North was severely damaged."

Nashville Fire spokesman Josep Pleasant said three people were injured and taken to hospital from the scene, but no one was in critical condition.
An eyewitness who lived near the scene told CNN, "Everything was on fire on the street. There were three cars that were completely engulfed."
The FBI has now taken over the investigation and asked in the press conference on Friday that someone report with information about the explosion. There is currently no information on whether anyone was in the vehicle at the time of the explosion.
