NASHVILLE (AP) – Police say a Tennessee man named Anthony Quinn Warner is under investigation in connection with the Christmas Day bombing that rocked downtown Nashville.
Metro Nashville Police Department Spokesman Don Aaron confirmed Warner’s identity Sunday.
Now, reports reveal investigators are “looking seriously” at whether “paranoia over 5G technology” may have motivated the blast, at least in part. Metro police and the FBI have not yet revealed if they believe the AT&T building where the RV was parked was Warner’s intended target.
On Monday, The Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted security camera footage of the explosion which took place Sunday, revealing how damaging the blast was to the surrounding area.
The tweet reads “This is video of Friday morning’s explosion recorded by an MNPD camera at 2nd Ave N & Commerce St.”
Separately, a law enforcement official told the AP that federal investigators have started examining Warner’s digital footprint and financial history.
The official could not discuss the case publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
Federal agents are examining the possibility that AT&T was targeted.
