A man whose business was destroyed in Nashville’s Christmas morning blast says an RV identical-looking to the one that detonated was recently lurking outside his shop — suggesting the bomber had been “staking out” the area.

Ink-parlor owner Peter Gibson told WZTV that in the past few weeks, he saw an RV parked where he usually puts his own vehicle outside his Pride and Glory Tattoo store.

“I can’t say if it was that one, but it was very similar,” Gibson told the local station of the bomber’s detonation vehicle.

“Whoever it was, they’d been staking out and they’d been doing their laps and their routine, practicing for a couple of weeks, it seems,” he said of the suspected bomber.

In a Facebook post, the popular tattoo parlor said, “The pain we are feeling is indescribable,” having been one of those businesses “completely wiped out” in the attack on historic buildings in downtown Nashville.

“Heartbroken, speechless, p—ed — all the above,” Gibson told WZTV. 

“I try to have a big heart, and I try to be a big person … [but] that person’s gonna get what they have coming, for sure,” he said of the attacker, who is believed to have died in the blast.

Reports have suggested that the suspected bomber, Anthony Quinn Warner — a local computer expert named as a “person of interest” — was paranoid about 5G technology and targeting an AT&T building on the block.

The blast wreaked havoc on cellphone service and police and hospital communications in several Southern states, with service still down for many early Sunday.
