Video captures shootout between suspect and cop at gas station

New surveillance footage has surfaced that appears to show a protracted shootout between a suspect and a police officer at a gas station in Richmond Hill last month.

It happened at a Petro Canada station near the southwest corner of Bayview Avenue and Major Mackenzie Drive at around 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 27.

Police have previously said that an officer had conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area when its “driver pulled out a firearm and fired shots at the officer.” The suspect was able to flee the scene but was later arrested after a 12-hour standoff at a nearby home. The police officer did not sustain any injuries as a result of the shooting.

Meanwhile, the legal proceedings against a suspect identified as 34-year-old Anoshirvan Shirizadeh remain ongoing. He has been charged with attempted murder, assault with intent to resist, dangerous driving and a slew of weapons-related charges.

Police have not yet commented on the surveillance camera footage.
