A man was shot by Canadian authorities just 72 hours before he could carry out a planned attack.
The man identified as Aaron Driver, 24, was captured by police in a taxi in Strathroy. An alert issued by the FBI to Canadian police early Wednesday morning about an “unknown individual that was clearly in the final stages of planning an attack using a homemade explosive device” helped prevent the attack.
“Obviously it was a race against time,” said RCMP deputy commissioner, Mike Cabana. “How quickly this was all established is actually a testament to the level of collaboration that exists between law enforcement agencies.”
