Suspect in Nashville explosion died in blast, officials say
Authorities have named the suspect in the explosion case.

AUTHORITIES SAY THE man suspected of setting off a bomb in a vehicle that rocked central Nashville on Christmas Day died in the explosion.

US Attorney Don Cochran identified the suspect yesterday as Anthony Quinn Warner.

Investigators said they used DNA to identify remains as Warner’s.

The FBI said they also matched the vehicle identification number to a registration belonging to Warner.

Federal agents and police had searched a home in suburban Nashville associated with Warner.

Authorities did not immediately provide details about a potential motive. 

Douglas Korneski, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s office in Memphis, said there was no indication anyone aside from Warner was involved in the bombing.

Three people were injured and dozens of buildings were damaged in an explosion in Nashville, Tennessee on Christmas Day.

Black smoke and flames were seen billowing from the area, which is packed with bars, restaurants and other retail establishments and is known as the heart of central Nashville’s tourist scene. 

Buildings shook in the immediate area and beyond after a loud boom was heard.
