Alejandro Cowo indicated that Wu was not the target.

There was not a robbery made; according to the information that we had received that the target was the other person that was along with thim who is Mr. Salgado.”
ASP Cowo acknowledged that there is a police check point in the area. However it did not deter the crime.
