been confirmed we have allowed our investigators to do their job they are there now and we are going to continue to provide you with information sheet he mentioned before about the improvised explosive device that is not an IED it was actually canisters of smoke grenades that he used inside of the when he entered the statue so this person was prepared today to come in this person was prepared to shoot people intent was to cause harm and as I stated before the investigative part of this is going to be thorough and it’s going to take some time as you can see behind us we opened up Bestgate Road we thought that we may need to secure that road way for a long period of time and as we get further into the investigation we realized that we don’t need that roadway but the building 880 will be secured for some time I do not have a time frame on that yet we’re going to be inside there for quite a bit and until this investigation is complete when I have more information I will share that confirmed information with you text before we confirm that I need an investigator to go and look into that and make sure that’s correct no I can’t share that with you the first time I’ve
