Forty second audio and video of the Nashville explosion played on a Facebook link is unbelievably shocking
Metro Nashville Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at approximately 5:30 am on Friday after finding a motorhome parked in front of an AT&T transmission building in downtown Nashville.
Coming from the RV was an audio indicating that a bomb would explode in 15 minutes. According to the Nashville Mayor Jim Shulman, several did evacuate the area but when the bomb didn't ignite after the 15 minutes, some returned to the location. Officers couldn't find where the shots were being fired but called in the hazardous devices unit and began evacuating residents. The RV exploded at 6:30 am CST.
Due to telecommunication issues from the explosion that rocked Nashville, EMS lines across western Kentucky have been affected. AT&T said due to the damage to the facilities in Nashville, it's producing a more far reaching service outage.
