— -- Police in Tennessee were searching for a person of interest today after a bomb was found in an employee's car outside a senior care facility.

"We are extremely grateful the bomb did not detonate when she opened that car door. If it had, the results would have been tragic –- for her and possibly residents inside this facility," Lt. Charles Warner told ABC affiliate WKRN-TV.

Franklin Police identified Mitchell Hunter Oakes, described as a convicted felon with a violent history and an extensive knowledge of bomb making and weapons, as a person of interest in the case.

Police told ABC affiliate WKRN-TV in Nashville that Oakes had some kind of prior relationship with the woman who they believe was the intended target.
