Scott Road SkyTrain station open, day after Transit Police officer shot

SURREY (NEWS 1130) – A warrant is out for Daon Gordon Glasgow, suspected of shooting and injuring a Transit Police officer at the Scott Road SkyTrain Station in Surrey on Wednesday afternoon.

He may be armed and attempting to flee the province, and police say he has a history of violence.

Glasgow, 35, is believed to have shot an officer at the Scott Road SkyTrain Station around 4 p.m. He is described as 5’5” tall and 170 pounds with dark skin and brown eyes. He had black stubble and a moustache at the time of the shooting, and was last seen wearing a blue hoodie and white Nike running shoes.

He was previously found guilty of shooting and killing a man at a Surrey McDonalds in 2010. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and banned from owning weapons for life.

He also uses the aliases Darrell James Davis and Cornell Gibson.

Police say people who live around the Scott Road SkyTrain station can resume their daily activities — and to avoid the area of King George Boulevard to 114th Avenue and 125A Street to 124th Street — but to remain vigilant. They are asking anyone who sees Glasgow or suspicious activity in that area to call 911.

The Transit Officer who was shot, Cst. Josh Harms, has since been released from the hospital.

He was treated at Royal Columbian Hospital and went home late Wednesday evening. Transit Police say he needs to meet with specialists to determine the extent of his injuries and his treatment options.
