NASHVILLE (AP) — Officials confirmed Sunday in a press conference that Anthony Quinn Warner, who died at the scene based on DNA evidence, has been identified as the suspect in the Nashville Christmas morning bombing, with no indication anyone else was involved.

Metro Nashville Police Department Spokesman Don Aaron confirmed Warner’s identity Sunday.

Federal and state investigators are trying to determine who set off a bomb inside a recreational vehicle parked near an AT&T facility, damaging more than 40 businesses and injuring three people.

Separately, a law enforcement official told the AP that federal investigators have started examining Warner’s digital footprint and financial history.

The official could not discuss the case publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Federal agents are examining the possibility that AT&T was targeted.
