Man charged with attempted murder in transit officer shooting in Metro Vancouver

February 12, 2019 - 3:57 PM

SURREY, B.C. - Mounties say charges have been laid in the shooting of a Metro Vancouver Transit Police officer on a SkyTrain platform last month.

RCMP say 35-year-old Daon Gordon Glasgow has been charged in the shooting on Jan. 30 at Scott Road station in Surrey, B.C.

The charges include attempted murder, using a restricted or prohibited firearm, discharging a restricted or prohibited firearm with the intent to endanger life and unlawful possession of a loaded restricted or prohibited firearm.

The shooting sent 27-year-old Const. Josh Harms to hospital with serious injuries, but the officer has been released and is expected to recover.

Glasgow was taken into custody Feb. 3 after a Canada-wide warrant was issued.

Assistant Commissioner Dwayne McDonald says he's pleased to see the matter now before the courts where the administration of justice can begin.

"Thank you to the hard work and dedication of our investigative team, assisted by numerous officers and staff within the detachment as well as other police agencies across the Lower Mainland," he says in a statement.

Surrey RCMP says it's continuing to lead the ongoing investigation and it encourages anyone with information who has not yet spoken with police to come forward.
