Investigators believe the explosion that rocked Nashville on Christmas morning was a suicide bombing, CNN reported Saturday, citing law-enforcement sources.

Human remains were found at the scene where a recreational vehicle blew up on Friday, officials had previously said.

The FBI was searching a home in the Antioch neighborhood of Nashville believed to belong to a person of interest in the blast that injured three people and damaged more than 40 businesses downtown.

Federal agents on Saturday could be seen searching the home and grounds of the property in Antioch that according to CBS News belonged to Anthony Quinn Warner, 63. A Google Maps image taken in May 2019 showed a recreational vehicle like the one that blew up parked at the property.

“We can’t confirm any individuals or anybody we’ve identified,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Doug Korneski said at a news conference on Saturday.

“At this point we don’t have any indication we are looking for another subject,” said Korneski. “But again, there’s 500 leads we’re running through.”

Authorities continued to cordon off the downtown area of the blast, but said there is no further danger.
