Schools in Burnaby, Surrey on Mitchell’s hit list: IHIT

Schools in Burnaby and Surrey were on the hit list of Angus David Mitchell, killed by police in a Maple Ridge shootout last week.

A Burnaby school was on the hit list of Angus David Mitchell, who was killed in a shootout with police last week in Maple Ridge, according to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT).

Mitchell was the prime suspect in the double murder at Royal Oak Sushi House and the attempted murder of his former landlord, both in Burnaby.

On Wednesday, a day after revealing Mitchell had the makings of a hit list of six people and six businesses in his minivan, IHIT revealed more details.

While the names of individuals and businesses will not be released, said IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Pound in a press release, they have been broken down by municipality.

In Burnaby, he planned to target one restaurant, an individual and a school. In New Westminster, there was one person on his list.

Surrey had the most targets, with five—a group home, a restaurant, a gym, a school and one individual. A White Rock security business was also on the former security guard’s list.

In Vancouver, Mitchell was targeting a coffee house and one person. In Coquitlam, it was one person and a landscaping business. In Port Coquitlam, it was one individual.

The “list” is more of of an individual workup for each target with home addresses, maps of individuals’ homes and escape routes, Pound said.

“We know his plans were methodically thought out and prepared for each target,” she said.

“We cannot put a number to the potential fatalities that could have come from Mr. Mitchell’s premeditated plan as many of the businesses were highly populated.”
