They showed stills of the gunman, before the shooting, holding his weapon, and made it clear the shooting was a very calculated ambush.

They did make it clear that despite earlier reports to the contrary, there was only the one gunman.

They also showed images of the weapons that Gavin Long had on him when he engaged officers yesterday.
