Shooting suspect Daon Glasgow has been arrested

SURREY (NEWS 1130) – Surrey RCMP have arrested Daon Glasgow, believed to be the man who shot and injured a Transit Police officer at the Scott Road SkyTrain station in Surrey at 4 pm on Jan. 30, 2019.

In a press conference Sunday morning, Surrey RCMP said Glasgow was arrested at a fourplex in Burnaby at 5:30 am. No one was injured during the arrest.

Police said all tenants were evacuated before they moved in, and three other people in the unit were detained but released a short time later.

Assistant Commissioner Dwayne McDonald wouldn’t say what exactly tipped police off to Glasgow’s location, or the suspect’s relationship with those in the unit with him at the time of his arrest.

 

McDonald said he’s proud of the RCMP for their work, and thanked the public for the support in what proved to be a very difficult and dangerous investigation.

The Serious Crimes Unit worked with the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service, Air 1 and Burnaby RCMP to make the arrest.

Glasgow, 35, 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.

The Transit Officer who was shot, 27-year-old Cst. Josh Harms, has been released from the hospital since the incident.

He was treated at Royal Columbian Hospital and went home late Wednesday evening.

Interim Transit Police Chief Officer Barry Kross said on Sunday that Harms is at home recovering, and doing well.
