RCMP release additional photos of Surrey SkyTrain shooting suspect

Feb 1 2019, 9:36 pm

Surrey RCMP has released additional photos of Daon Gordon Glasgow — the suspect in Wednesday’s shooting of a Metro Vancouver Transit Police officer at Scott Road SkyTrain Station.

Police say the photos span the past 20 years, showing how Glasgow has changed his appearance in the past.

Glasgow is described as a dark-skinned male standing at 5’5” tall, and 170 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.

At the time of the incident, he was observed to have black stubble and a moustache. He was also wearing a blue hoodie and white Nike brand running shoes right after the occurrence. 

Police now believe that Glasgow was wearing a white hoodie with a black design shortly after being seen in the blue hoodie.

These photos illustrate how Glasgow changes his appearance.

Police said Glasgow has a history of violence and is currently wanted on a Canada-Wide Warrant for being Unlawfully at Large. He has also served time for killing a man in 2011, according to a Surrey newspaper report.

RCMP also released surveillance images and video taken of the suspect running away from the busy SkyTrain station.

Police are also asking for anyone who may have dash cam footage around the Scott Road SkyTrain station on January 30, 2019, between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm to come forward.

Police will be concluding their searches of the Bridgeview area later today and the large number of officers in the area will be reduced.

The RCMP Command Post will remain in the Scott Road SkyTrain station parking lot to take information from individuals who want to speak directly to officers.

Authorities also believe that Glasgow may attempt to leave the province in hopes of evading the police. Members of the Surrey RCMP have already notified surrounding jurisdictions.

He’s believed to be armed and anyone who sees Glasgow should not approach him but instead call 911.

The shot officer was transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. He was identified as 27-year-old Const. Josh Harms, who has been with Transit Police for three years and was “working on his regular shift” when he was shot.

On Thursday, Transit Police said Harms had been released from hospital late Wednesday night and “will be meeting with specialists to determine the extent of his injuries and treatment options.”
