So far, no name or description has been released for the person who took out a machete at what appears to be 29th Station in Vancouver.
Vancouver police have shot a man they say was carrying a machete outside a SkyTrain station.
Const. Jason Doucette says the shooting happened at the 29th Street SkyTrain station in east Vancouver.
He says the man is in hospital but his condition is unknown.
Police confirmed they shot a man at 29th Station Monday morning after he allegedly threatened passengers with a machete and broke out of a SkyTrain that officers tried to use to contain him.
The article continues on for several paragraphs with zero information about who the machete wielding man is, or what he looks like.
Officers located the man in a SkyTrain car, evacuated the train and surrounding area, then closed the SkyTrain doors, trapping the suspect inside, according to a written VPD release. But he broke his way out with the machete and did not follow police directions.
That's when a Vancouver police officer shot him, said VPD.
