The suspect's right hand was in the box and investigators believe that arm was used to trigger the crossbow and fire, Peel Regional Police Detective Sergeant Jim Kettles said.
"Investigators believe that this was a premeditated, targeted and isolated attack based on the conversation that occurred between the victim and the suspect".
He is seen holding a large cardboard box, inside of which police said he had hidden a crossbow.
