Armed police have declared it a 'major incident' and are at the scene at the Park Inn hotel on West George Street, with part of the city centre on lockdown.

Police Scotland have confirmed the attack is not being treated as a terrorist incident. Witness reports suggest a man was seen leaving a building with his hands up.

He said of one of the suspected victims: "He was on the ground with someone holding his side - I don't know if it was a bullet wound, a stab wound, or what it was.

"After that we saw commotion, ambulances further up and we saw armed police all running into the hotel next to [local pub] The Society Room.

"We were still standing outside, after that the police all came down, the riot police and triage team told us to go back in and lock the door."

In a statement shortly after 2.30pm, Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson said: "We are continuing to deal with the incident on West George Street #Glasgow and would ask people to avoid the area.

"However, I would like to reassure the public that this is a contained incident and that the wider public is not at risk. Armed police officers attended the incident and I can confirm that a male suspect was shot by an armed officer.

"I would like to reassure the public that at this time we are not looking for anyone else in relation to this incident. I can also confirm that a police officer was injured while dealing with the incident and that officer is receiving treatment in hospital."

Our thoughts are with everyone in Glasgow.
