Daon Glasgow, the man accused in the 2019 shooting of a Metro Vancouver Transit Police officer at a Surrey SkyTrain station, has been handed 10 years in prison for aggravated assault.
The B.C. Prosecution Service also confirmed he received eight years for robbing a cannabis dispensary in Vancouver a few days earlier.
After credit for time served, the Prosecution Service said Glasgow will serve a 15-year and 301-day sentence.
Transit Police Const. Josh Harms was shot at the Scott Road SkyTrain station on Jan. 30, 2019.
Glasgow was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for being unlawfully at large and was later arrested on Feb. 3 in Burnaby.

Glasgow had been charged with attempted murder of the officer and firearms-related charges.
In the decision, the judge said the Crown failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Glasgow “intended to cause the death of Const. Harms when he shot him.”
At the time of the shooting, Glasgow was on statutory release after serving most of an eight-year, six-month sentence for fatally shooting a man during a drug deal inside a Surrey McDonald’s in 2010. He pleaded guilty to the crime in 2011.
Harms suffered injuries to his hand and arm and returned to work a few months after the shooting.
