Shoot­ing and wild chase end with crash, ar­rests

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

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.
