The video that was just released by the Nashville Police Department is bone-chilling.
Recent security footage obtained by Nashville police officers contains audio from an RV that was warning people to evacuate just moments before a bomb exploded in that same RV.
The warning was heard saying “If you can hear this message, evacuate now”.
Watch the sinister warning yourself:
Fox News reported these details regarding the bombing
“This appears to have been an intentional act,” Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted. “Law enforcement is closing downtown streets as investigation continues.”
An audio warning was being broadcast from an RV just before it blew up, Metro Nashville Police Department Chief John Drake told reporters during a news conference.
“If you can hear this message, evacuate now,” the warning said.
Officers first responded to the area after receiving a report of shots fired, Drake said. They called in the bomb squad after seeing the suspicious vehicle, the RV, broadcasting the message, he said. Drake said that officers found the RV with a recording saying that it would explode in 15 minutes.
“Basically (it) was saying that it was going to detonate within a certain time frame,” Drake told reporters. “The officers immediately began knocking on doors and evacuating residents here not knowing if the bomb was going to detonate immediately or if it was going to go off in the time that it stated.”
The New York Post covered the explosion also:
The RV that blew up in Nashville on Friday morning was playing a recording that warned it was going to explode, the city’s police chief said.
The recording said “a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes,” Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said during an afternoon news conference.
Officers who had responded to reports of shots fired in the area “decided to evacuate the buildings nearby” and were knocking on doors when the RV exploded, Drake said.
No evidence of a Christmas Day shooting was uncovered before the cops came upon the RV, officials have said.
Stay vigilant out there my friends.
