On Wednesday, police in Ontario, Canada, killed a man suspected of being part of a terrorist plot.

Authorities say they received "credible information of a potential terrorist act," CBC News reports, and they conducted a raid at a home in the city of Strathroy, 140 miles southwest of Toronto. A family member confirmed to CBC News that the man killed was 24-year-old Aaron Driver, who was arrested last year after he posted messages online supporting the Islamic State, using the alias Harun Abdurahman.
