I'm watching Global News now, and a caller has said that the police yelled "suspect down", and an air ambulance arrived and loaded one person on.

he's only a suspect in the shooting of his landlord and just a person of interest in the sushi shootings it isn't known if he has anything to do with the sushi murders his van was just in the vicinity

and most of all we're all innocent unless proven guilty and even then if you were a doctor/medic everyone's life is valuable to you, you've dedicated your life to saving them you're no murderer...


anyway...

Latest update:

Armed and dangerous suspect shot in Maple Ridge - News1130

Quote:
BURNABY (NEWS1130) - Angus David Mitchell has died in hospital after exchanging shots with police in Maple Ridge near 132nd . He was wanted for attempted murder and was believed to be carrying a high-powered rifle with a scope.

Burnaby RCMP were searching for Mitchell after his former landlord was shot in front of his home in Burnaby last night.

Superintendent Dave Walsh says Mitchell was alive when they left the scene but the 26-year-old has since been taken off life support.

"Shots were fired between the suspect and Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team members. We are certainly pleased none of our officers are injured at this point in time."

A tip came in an hour after Burnaby RCMP made the public warning. Mitchell was discovered in his green van in a rural area near 224th and 132nd street.

He is believed to have been armed with a high-powered Mossberg Maverick rifle with a scope. Mounties don't think Mitchell has the gun illegally; they believe he bought it.

Police think he's been living out of his 1994 green Ford Aerostar van. They say he has been evicted from a few places in the past and he was fired from another job.

Mitchell recently posted an angry rant on his Facebook page that seems to be aimed at his former employer.

Victoria Police are meeting with the man who recently fired Mitchell from his job at Themis Security Inc. His parting with the company was reportedly bitter and the owner is now worried for the safety of the employees.

He is a former security guard. He is 5'4" tall and weighs 121 pounds. He is not known to police.



Neighbour describes last night's shooting

There's still police tape around a two-storey home on Gilpin Crescent just off Willingdon near Metrotown. The victim of last night's shooting in hospital with serious injuries.

We spoke with one neighbour who ran to help a man who'd appeared to have been shot in the shoulder last night. He says the victim was conscious, but bleeding profusely.

"I thought he had an accident... He said 'I got shot,'" he explains. "I called the RCMP. I called 911, my wife called 911. I told them someone was shot."

He believes a Mandarin-speaking family lives at the home, including two teenaged daughters.

Mitchell is also believed to be involved in a double homicide at a Burnaby sushi restaurant on Sunday.
