NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - An officer with Metro Vancouver Transit Police who was shot last week in the line of duty will undergo surgery for his injuries this week.

In a statement, Const. Josh Harms expressed his gratitude to his colleagues with the transit police and the RCMP, as well as staff at the B.C. Ambulance Service and Royal Columbia Hospital.

The 27-year-old also thanked his wife, family and members of the public who expressed their support.

Harms was shot Wednesday on a SkyTrain platform in Surrey.

Police said Daon Glasgow was taken into custody Sunday after a Canada-wide warrant was issued.

No charges have been laid.

Transit police say Harms visited the department's headquarters on Friday to meet with his co-workers.

"I have so many reasons to be grateful, and so many people to thank," he said in the statement released Monday.

"I thank God my injuries were not worse. Though I have a long road ahead, I am going to make a full recovery and rejoin my colleagues as soon as possible."
