Man shot was threatening people on SkyTrain with machete: VPD | CTV Vancouver News: A man allegedly threatening commuters with a machete on a busy SkyTrain was shot by a VPD officer as horrified transit passengers watched the terrifying incident unfold.

The 29th Avenue SkyTrain station in East Vancouver was packed with commuters during Monday morning's rush hour around 8:15 a.m. when Transit Police tracked the man to a train car, and tried to keep him inside.

"They evacuated the train and the surrounding area, and closed the doors to the car, containing the man inside," the VPD said in a statement issued to media.
