The National Response Team will help investigate a deadly explosion that happened near the Hickman-Humphreys county line on Wednesday.
The NRT, a special investigative team of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, will be working to reconstruct the scene, investigate how the explosion started and sift through debris to find evidence.
The explosion at Rio Ammunition killed one man and injured three other people.
Officials confirmed that Rodney Edwards died as a result of his injuries.
As of Thursday afternoon, two people remain hospitalized. A man named Joey Clark is in critical but stable condition and the other victim, identified as Sheila Edwards, is in stable condition.
The hospital says another male victim was released from the hospital.
The NRT is working with ATF special agents from the Nashville Field Division and the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office-Bomb and Arson Section, the Humphreys County Sheriff's Office and the Humphreys County Emergency Management Agency.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the injured, their families and those of the deceased during this traumatic event. The community suffered a great loss due to this devastating incident," said ATF Special Agent in Charge Jeff Fulton in a statement.
