Reporter: Do the officers know who the intended target was in this attack?
Inspector Wilfred Ferrufino, Crimes Investigation Branch: “I don’t want to go into details in regards to that, the investigation is ongoing and as soon as there is some confirmation and we have the green light we will brief you on that.”
