When he arrived, he did not hear any gunfire. While he was investigating, Officer Brenna Hosey came to support him.
Luellen, a three-year veteran of the Nashville Police Department, told reporters on Sunday: “The RV announced the news immediately after she got off the car.” “Along the way, I didn’t quote my words exactly, but, “This There is a big bomb in the car. Your main goal is to evacuate.'”
He said: “I’m not sure what I heard, so I looked at Officer Horsey just to verify that we heard the same thing.” “Then it started again.”
Soon thereafter, the RV exploded, kicking Luellen down, causing damage to dozens of companies And three people were injured-but it didn̵
At the press conference on Sunday, five of the six police officers provided first-hand information on the morning of the day, what they saw and what they experienced-the eerie news broadcast from the RV and its rescue The hard work of life, the shock of the explosion and attack. Worried about their colleagues.
Officer Wells said: “This will keep us together forever, for the rest of our lives.”
“We are acting as soon as possible”
After the RV news started, Luellen said he notified the sheriff. Miller said to let everyone leave there. Luellen requires all available units.
“From his voice, we knew it was serious,” said Wells, who works with Topping.
He said: “We got there as fast as possible, not knowing that the RV was the problem vehicle.” “At the time, we were actually in front of it.”
When the police arrived at the scene and waited for the bomb squad to arrive, Sipos and Horsey walked into an apartment building and started knocking on the door. Sergeant Miller also arrived and asked the officers to move their vehicles to a more strategic location before they went door-to-door with others. At the same time, Topping remains on the street to prevent pedestrians from leaving.
Sipos said: “I am knocking on the door with all the other officials. I believe we have made contact with six or seven families.”
Soon, the RV information changed to a countdown, announcing that the vehicle would explode.
Horsey said: “At this point, we heard 14 minutes until the explosion notice, so we will act as soon as possible.”
Sipos said that after clearing the first building, the officers began to march south. They entered another apartment building, but did not contact anyone inside.
Luellen told them that the RV information changed again and the song is now playing. He said that ATF agents later helped him identify it as Petula Clark’s “urban area.”
Officials said that soon the situation changed again. The detonation distance is three minutes.
I literally hear God
Lu Lun said that all the windows of the RV were covered. He searched for the license plate outside but found nothing. Once, Wells said he saw a camera above the rearview mirror of the RV.
He said, “It feels like someone is watching from behind.” “To me, it feels very strange. All the warnings you hear about alertness, about the hair standing behind the neck. All of this passes through me. body.”
Wells returned to his car to obtain heavy plates for extra protection. He said that when he said: “I did hear God tell me to turn around to check the toppings,” he started walking towards the RV.
Topping was still walking towards the others, but she said she had something to tell her to change direction, and then walked towards Wells.
Then she said: “I just saw the biggest flame ever, the biggest explosion. I just saw orange and…feeled a heat wave.”
She said: “After the explosion, I will never forget that the window was broken.” “This looks like a big prop in a movie scene. All the glass was broken immediately.”
Lu Lun, who had just told a man to walk the dog to safety, said that the explosion knocked him to the ground. Sipos, who was taking off his equipment from the patrol car, was thrown into the trunk. Hosey was thrown out, but was caught.
Topping went straight to Wells. They grabbed each other and hid at the door to ensure safety.
“I am scared, I just lost all my details,” she said.
“Christmas will never be the same”
He said that everyone is fine, although Wells temporarily lost his hearing in one ear. The medical staff wanted to take him to the hospital, but when he heard that the three were injured, he said that he told them to rescue the injured.
But there is still work to be done.
At the same time, Luellen inspected the man with his dog, then inspected his companion and ran to the debris. He found that four more people had left the building, who had not initially contacted the police officer and told them to leave the area.
Hosey said: “I just want to make sure that all of us are okay before we start from there.” She shifted the focus to ensuring the safety of those who did not leave the explosion zone or return.
Sipos said: “We just spent some time letting the foreign residents and pedestrians leave to keep them away from the area.”
However, after their experience, Wells said he felt lucky to be alive and was inseparable from his colleagues.
Wells said of his colleagues: “The love for them is greater now.” “Christmas is different for each of us.”
