Man shot dead after stabbing six people in Glasgow

GLASGOW: A man stabbed six people including a policeman in the Scottish city of Glasgow on Friday evening before he was shot dead by police.
An eyewitness local media she had seen several people covered in blood being treated by the emergency services after the incident at a city centre hotel.  The attacker was considered as the only fatality despite earlier media reports that he had killed two other people.
Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson said the incident had been contained and there was no wider risk to the public.
“The individual who was shot by armed police has died,” Police Scotland said in a statement, adding that they were not looking for anyone else. Police said they were not treating the incident as terrorism.
Police said all six wounded were men, including the injured officer who was in a critical but stable condition. The officer was later identified by police as Constable David Whyte.
The hotel had been used to house asylum seekers during the coronavirus pandemic, although authorities cautioned against speculating about a motive from that.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was “deeply saddened by the terrible incident in Glasgow”. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said it was the “toughest of days for Glasgow,” reiterating a call from police not to gather in crowds this weekend.
Last week, three people were killed in the southern English town of Reading when a man wielding a knife went on the rampage in a park.
