Former security guard wanted for attempted murder
BURNABY, B.C. – Police have warned the public against a dangerously armed, former security guard wanted in connection with the attempted murder of his 51-year-old landlord and a double homicide earlier this week.
Angus David Mitchell, 26, is alleged to have shot his former landlord in front of his home in the 4400 block of Gilpin Crescent in Burnaby on Tuesday. The victim survived the shooting but is in hospital in a serious condition.
Mitchell is also wanted in connection with the killings of two persons inside a sushi restaurant on Royal Oak in Burnaby on May 27 for which a motive has not been established.
Mitchell is a former security guard, 5’4″ tall and weighs 121 pounds. He is armed with a high powered Mossberg Maverick rifle with a scope. He is considered emotionally unstable and extremely dangerous, warn police. Former co-workers, employers, landlords, room mates or anyone else who Mitchell has had a conflict with at any time in the past should be cautious about their personal safety.
Mitchell is believed to live in his 1994 green Ford Aerostar van with BC licence 591PTG. The public is asked to be on the lookout for this van in parking lots, motels, restaurants, businesses or isolated locations where he may be staying overnight.
Anyone with information on the immediately whereabouts of Mitchell should call 911, or the Burnaby tip line at 604 294-7611.
