Days-long search

Police Const. Josh Harms, 27, was on regular patrol duty on Jan. 30 when a suspect shot him on the platform of the Scott Road SkyTrain station around 4:20 p.m. PT. His injuries were not life threatening. 

In the following days, police released surveillance footage of a shooting suspect and said they were looking for Glasgow.

A sweeping four-day manhunt of the area involved at least 80 officers. Schools and residences were temporarily put on lockdown.

Glasgow was arrested four days later at 5:30 a.m at a home in the 7500 block of Boundary Road in Burnaby.
