Surrey RCMP said the officer was transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. He has been identified as 27-year-old Const. Josh Harms, who has been with Transit Police for three years.

Police said Harms was “working on his regular shift” when he was shot.

Police described the suspect as a man in his 20s, with dark skin, a dark stubble goatee, and a moustache. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie and white, Nike runners with a large black “swoosh”.

The investigation began at approximately 4:20 pm, after Surrey RCMP received 911 calls reporting a shooting. At the same time, RCMP were alerted by Metro Vancouver Transit Police that one of their officers had been shot at the Scott Road Skytrain station platform.

Now, police said they currently have two areas of containment set up: King George Boulevard to 114 Ave, and 125A Street to 124 Street.

The Scott Road SkyTrain station currently remains closed and while no new vehicles are being allowed into the area, police are  escorting people into the parking lot and assisting them, to get their vehicles out of the area.

TransLink noted the station may be closed until the end of service hours Wednesday night as a result of the investigation and people travelling on the Expo Line who want to get to Scott must travel to Gateway Station.

“We currently have a shuttle bus service from Gateway to Scott on an approximately 6-minute frequency,” a spokesperson for TransLink said.

As for residents who live within the containment area, police are advising them to stay inside, lock their doors, turn on any exterior lights, and call 911 if they see anything suspicious.

A tip line has also been set up for the public to provide any information which can assist this investigation. That number is 604-502-6284.
