Takedown in East Vancouver Langley shooting victim still in critical condition
By Katie Mercer, The Province February 8, 2009
It took more than 20 officers to take down three men at gunpoint Saturday afternoon in East Vancouver after what police say began as a routine traffic violation.
An eyewitness told The Province the men were taken out of two SUV-style vehicles one-by-one, frisked and loaded into a police van at East 5th and Main Street at 2:30 p.m.
The witness said he counted 15 uniformed officers, about six in plainclothes, two police dogs and 15 marked and unmarked cars lining the road from Quebec to Main streets.
