“All buildings in this area must be evacuated now,” the recording said in a loop. “If you can hear this message, evacuate now.”

“As officers responded they encountered an RV that had a recording saying that a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes,” the police department spokesperson said. “Officers upon hearing that decided to evacuate the buildings nearby.”

During the evacuation the RV exploded causing massive damage and injuring at least three people.

Another Nashville police spokesperson also weighed in on the warning.

“There were announcements coming from the RV and that’s the extent of what we can say at the moment,” he said. “
