The manhunt is over – and it ended in Burnaby.
Police say they have arrested Daon Gordon Glasgow without incident at a home in the 7500 block of Boundary Road in Burnaby.
Police allege the suspect shot Const. Josh Harms on a transit platform during the busy commuter hours on Wednesday afternoon.
Police had released mugshots span 20 years and illustrate how Glasgow has altered his appearance many times.
There has been a heavy police presence in the Bridgeview neighbourhood where the shooting took place.
Investigators were worried Glasgow might try leaving the province to evade police and they notified officers in other jurisdictions to keep a lookout.
They said Glasgow was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for being unlawfully at large with respect to an unrelated incident.
An RCMP command post was set up at the Scott Road SkyTrain station parking lot so people with information about what happened can speak directly with officers.
At a press conference Sunday, Surrey RCMP assistant commissioner Dwayne McDonald said Glasgow was in custody but had yet to be charged in connection with the shooting.
He said tenants in other units in the home were evacuated before an Emergency Response Team (ERT raided the home. Three other individuals were arrested and later released, McDonald said. Police did not share any other information about the three other people.
The arrest was the result of cooperation between several law enforcement agencies, including the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Section and Lower Mainland ERT, the Integrated Police Dog Service, the Air 1 helicopter and Burnaby RCMP.
Police said that no one was injured during the arrests.
“From the outset, this has been an extensive and complex investigation and I want recognize the tireless efforts made by Surrey RCMP police officers and support staff, as well as many of our policing partners across the Lower Mainland and the country,”McDonald said.
Investigators are still asking anyone with dash camera footage from the area around the time of the shooting to come forward and a tip line has also been established.
Public officials, including Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum and Premier John Horgan issued statements of support for Harms, who Metro Vancouver Transit Police say has been released from hospital.
