Those targets included retired officers, 商业领袖, intelligence personnel andsoldiers and police of every brand.

Suggested attack methods werestones, weights, edged weapons— as well as improvised explosive devices and the arson of commercial buildings and vehicles.

Authorities haven’t yet released a motive for the attack in Nashville and no suspects have been identified, but retired NYPD detective Bill Ryan 告诉福克斯新闻 he wouldn’t rule out first responders and police officers as the intended targets.

You have to really wonder what the motivation of the bombers are — I don’t think this was one person; it was probably an organized group of people,” Ryan said.

Nashville cops responding to reports ofshots firedin the city’s downtown area were drawn instead to the RV — which played a recording that said a bomb would go off within 15 分钟.

Officers were banging on doors and helping get residents to safety when the vehicle exploded, injuring three people.

I kind of think it was probably an idea to get first responders to come in,” said Ryan, who was part of an arson and explosions task force.
