Border Guard Shot

Border Guard Shot, A lone gunman shot and wounded a female border guard at British Columbia’s Peace Arch border crossing on Tuesday afternoon before turning the gun on himself. The unnamed officer, who is believed to have been shot in the neck, was breathing when she was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital, Corporal Bert Paquet of the Surrey RCMP said on Tuesday.

“The first report at the scene revealed that a male, a lone male, had shot an officer in her booth,” Cpl. Paquet said.

Soon after that, the man was pronounced dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, he added. Police had not yet confirmed how many shots were fired.

“We’re still investigating, trying to ascertain that,” Cpl. Paquet said.

The incident, which unfolded at about two o’clock on a sunny afternoon at the Douglas border crossing between Surrey and Blaine, Wash. – more commonly known as the Peace Arch crossing – brought crossborder traffic to a standstill as police interviewed potential witnesses and photographed licence plates.

A white van stood with its rear doors open, and dozens of officers swarmed the area.

Police said the man drove to the crossing alone in a vehicle with Washington licence plates. They have yet to establish whether he owned it.

Glen Pederson, who lives near the Peace Arch border crossing, said two RCMP helicopters began circling overhead and one landed in a parking lot inside the border control area.

“There are cops all over the place,” he said. “The traffic is holding. Nobody is moving. There are police or border agents everywhere.”

Police were interviewing CBSA staff and members of the public.
