Officials: Person of interest ID’d in Nashville explosion

News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Two law enforcement officials have told The Associated Press that federal investigators have identified a person of interest in connection with the explosion that rocked downtown Nashville on Christmas Day and are searching a home associated with that person.

More than 24 hours after the explosion, a motive remained elusive as investigators worked round-the-clock to resolve unanswered questions about the mysterious blast, which took place on a mostly deserted street on a sleepy holiday morning and was prefaced by a recorded warning advising those nearby to evacuate.

Officials are searching a home in Antioch in suburban Nashville.
