Person of interest identified in connection to Nashville blast
A law enforcement agency told CBS News that at least one person of interest was identified in connection with the Christmas morning explosion in Nashville. The person is connected to the exploded recreational vehicle.
Police responded to a shot that was fired near the AT&T building in downtown Nashville early Friday. Instead, they found a mobile home with clothes and blinds on the windows. Shortly afterwards, the warning of an impending bomb sounded and an explosion rocked the area around 6:30 a.m.
Cartridge casings were found at the scene, but it is believed that the ammunition associated with them was triggered by the large explosion.
