RCMP Converts Islam Convert to Worm Food

Good job, Mounties! However, as usual, he was "known to authorities.

Aaron Driver, terror threat suspect, killed in confrontation with police
Driver's family told RCMP shot the ISIS supporter after he detonated a device, injuring himself and 1 other

CBC News has confirmed that Aaron Driver, a suspect being sought in connection with a terror threat, has been killed in a confrontation with police in Strathroy, Ont.

A family member confirmed the death of the 24-year-old.

CBC News has learned that Driver's family was told by the RCMP that police shot Driver after he detonated a device that injured himself and another person. The family was also told Driver had another device that he was going to detonate, which is why police shot him.

A senior police official told Canadian Press Wednesday the suspect allegedly planned to use a bomb to carry out a suicide bombing mission in a public area but was killed in a police operation.

The RCMP were conducting an operation in a residential southwestern Ontario neighbourhood of Strathroy on Wednesday evening after it said credible information of a potential terrorist act was received earlier in the day.

"A suspect was identified and the proper course of action has been taken to ensure that there is no danger to the public's safety," according to an RCMP statement

"As this is still an unfolding matter and that the investigation is still underway, we are not able to provide further comment at this time," the RCMP said.

ISIS supporter on peace bond

Driver, a known ISIS supporter, agreed to the conditions of a peace bond in a Winnipeg court earlier this year after being arrested in June 2015. By agreeing to the peace bond, Driver was "consenting or acknowledging that there are reasonable grounds to fear that he may participate, contribute directly or indirectly in the activity of a terrorist group."
