Six men were hospitalized and a male suspect shot dead by armed police during a major incident in the city center of Glasgow, Scotland, in which an officer was reportedly stabbed.

Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson said police responded to a report of an incident at the Park Inn hotel on West George Street at 12:50 p.m. Friday local time (7:50 a.m. ET).”Officers were on the scene within two minutes, and armed officers shortly afterward, and the incident was quickly contained,” he said.

“A man was shot by armed police and has died. Six other men are in hospital for treatment, including a 42-year-old police officer, who is in a critical but stable condition. The officer’s family is aware.”The other men in hospital are aged 17, 18, 20, 38 and 53. Liaison officers have been appointed. 

“Our thoughts are with the families of those who were injured, including our officer.”Johnson said the incident was not being treated as terrorism and the investigation is continuing, but he added that there was “no wider risk to the public.”

Dozens of police vehicles, along with fire trucks and ambulances, attended the scene. Armed police were seen entering a building next to the hotel.
