Knifeman kills two in Glasgow, suspect shot dead - BBC

A man stabbed two people to death in the Scottish city of Glasgow, British media reported on Friday (June 26).

Police said the suspect had been shot dead.

They also confirmed that six people were being treated in hospital, including an officer.

The officer is in a critical but stable condition, police confirmed.

A witness told British media she saw several people being treated by emergency services after an incident at a hotel, which happened just after one o'clock local time.

Images showed armed police at the scene on West George Street in Glasgow city center.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was 'deeply saddened' by the attack.

Authorities have yet to say what the motive for the stabbing was.

The incident comes just a week after three people were killed in the southern English town of Reading by a man carrying a knife.

Police said the Reading attack was being teated as terrorism.
