File # 2019-15336

The Surrey RCMP have now identified a suspect in yesterday’s shooting of a Metro Vancouver Transit Police officer at the Scott Road Skytrain Station (see previous news release).

Police have identified 35-year-old Daon Gordon Glasgow as the suspect in the shooting.

Daon Glasgow is described as a dark skinned male, 35 years old, 5’5 tall, 170 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. At the time of the incident he was observed to have black stubble and a moustache, however he is known to quickly alter his appearance. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie and white Nike brand running shoes.

Daon Glasgow is believed to be armed and anyone who sees him should not approach him but should call 911.

Daon Glasgow has a history of violence and is known to police. He is currently wanted on a Canada Wide Warrant for being Unlawfully at Large.

Investigators believe that Glasgow may try to leave the province in an attempt to evade police. Surrey RCMP has notified other jurisdictions and asked them to be on the lookout for Glasgow.

A police presence remains in the area of yesterday’s incident however area roads are open to residents and the Scott Road SkyTrain station is now re-opened for regular operations. Vehicle traffic entering and leaving the area (King George Blvd to 114th Avenue and 125A Street to 124Th Street) will continue to be checked by police. Police are asking non-residents to stay away from the area as the police investigation continues.

Area residents can resume their regular activities, however they should remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity or sitings of Glasgow by calling 911.

While we strongly encourage anyone with information to call 911, those with information who wish to remain anonymous, can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
