NASHVILLE – The MNPD’s Specialized Investigations Division is investigating the source of an emailed ‘non-location-specific bomb threat’ received by the Nashville Public Library downtown. The police department’s Central Precinct received notice of the bomb threat from library staff at 10:30 a.m. Central Precinct officers joined with staff in checking the downtown building for suspicious items, while officers from other precincts did the same at branch library locations.
Nothing out of the ordinary was found.
Out of an abundance of caution, library leadership elected to close all libraries for the day. This criminal investigation remains active.
