The man shot dead by police during a stabbing attack in Glasgow has been named as Badreddin Abadlla Adam. He was from Sudan.

The 28-year-old’s identity is “based on information the deceased provided to the Home Office earlier this year”, Police Scotland said.

PC David Whyte, 42, was one of six people injured in the attack at the Park Inn Hotel on Friday.

Police Scotland said it was continuing to investigate the circumstances.

Suspect Mr Adam died after being shot by specialist officers from the force.

“The police discharge of firearms resulting in a fatality will also continue to be fully investigated by the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC),” the force said.

“Both of these inquiries, which take place under the direction of the Lord Advocate, are ongoing and it would not be appropriate to speculate either about the events or the outcomes of these investigations.”

PC Whyte was critically injured in the attack and described the scene as “something I will never forget”.

In a statement from his hospital bed, he said: “The incident myself and colleagues faced in West George Street was extremely challenging.”

“As the first responders on scene, myself and my colleague did what all police officers are trained for to save lives,” he added.

Police said the other five casualties remained in hospital, one of them in a critical condition.

The injured males are aged 17, 18, 20, 38 and 53.

They have been described as three asylum seekers who were staying at the hotel at the time of the attack, and two hotel staff.

The 91-room hotel is understood to have been housing about 100 asylum seekers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nicola Sturgeon wished all those who were injured a “full and speedy recovery”.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson said the attack was not being treated as terrorism.

The incident prompted a large police presence at the city’s George Square on Saturday morning.
