Daon Gordon Glasgow, 35, of Vancouver has been charged with attempted murder and weapons offences in the Jan. 30 shooting of Transit Police Constable Josh Harms at Surrey’s Scott Road SkyTrain Station.

Glasgow was arrested at a house in Burnaby a few days after an extensive manhunt.

Harms was shot twice in the arm.

Glasgow has been charged with the following: Attempted murder using a restricted or prohibited firearm; discharging a restricted or prohibited firearm with the intent to endanger life; intentionally discharging a firearm while being reckless to the life and safety of other persons; and unlawful possession of a loaded restricted or prohibited firearm.
