Surrey SkyTrain police shooting suspect served time for killing someone: report

Feb 1 2019, 12:15 pm

Daon Gordon Glasgow, the 35-year-old wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with the shooting of a BC Transit Police officer, served time for killing a man in 2011, according to a Surrey newspaper report.

Three-year Const. Josh Harms, 27, was working when he was shot at the Scott Road SkyTrain Station on Wednesday afternoon. Harms, who was shot in the arm, was rushed to hospital with serious injuries, and was released hours later.

The suspect, however, was caught on surveillance footage as he fled. The incident set off a massive manhunt for the armed man, and sparked warnings for local residents to keep inside their homes.

RCMP fear that Glasgow will try to leave BC, but have notified surrounding jurisdictions.

Mounties say the suspect has a history of violence.

In 2011, Glasgow was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the shooting death of a man inside a McDonald’s washroom, according to a report by the Surrey Now Leader. The crime was linked to the drug trade, it says, and the sentence for the murder included a lifetime ban on possessing weapons.

Court records obtained by Daily Hive show a man named Daon Gordon Glasgow was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in Vancouver in 2005. Four months later, that person was charged with theft over $5,000 and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, with those offences taking place in Ontario.

Glasgow is described as a dark-skinned male, 5’5”, 170 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.  He was seen to have black stubble and a moustache, but has a history of quickly altering his appearance.

Anyone who sees Glasgow is told to call 911 immediately.
