Shooting and wild chase end with crash, arrests
SURREY, B.C. — Bullets flew as one vehicle pursued another across two Metro Vancouver municipalities, with the driver of a pickup truck following someone who’d fired at him from a car. RCMP Staff Sgt. Paul Hayes said the dangerous chase began in Surrey at about 8 p.m. Monday, moments after the truck driver called police to report he’d confronted a suspicious vehicle parked in his neighbourhood. Three occupants in a white car left the area as shots were fired at the truck driver, Hayes said. The pickup driver chased the other vehicle for nearly half an hour as it sped into Delta along busy highways. Hayes said the pickup driver refused to comply with repeated police demands to stop the chase. The car lost control on icy streets in Delta, shearing off a power pole and leaving its three occupants with various, non-life threatening injuries. One of the suspects, Cory Myers, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for failing to comply with probation as well as a local warrant for break and enter.
