Double murder suspect shot dead

An armed man suspected in a double murder and an attempted murder in Burnaby, B.C., has been killed in a shootout with police.

RCMP caught up with 26-year-old Angus David Mitchell in Maple Ridge within hours of issuing a public warning about him.

Supt. Dave Walsh says Mitchell was shot in a confrontation with members of the emergency response team in a rural area.

Police were called to the area after reports someone had seen a vehicle believed to be owned by Mitchell.

Police say Mitchell was a suspect in the shooting deaths of a man and woman in a restaurant on Sunday and in the shooting and wounding of his former landlord on Tuesday.

Police said Mitchell had been evicted from his home six months ago. (News1130,CKNW)
