All victims are in a stable condition, including officer David Whyte, 42, who was injured after police were alerted to the incident.

The Park Inn Hotel was being used by the Mears group to house asylum-seekers during the coronavirus pandemic.  

A statement released by the force added: "Police Scotland will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident in Glasgow. 

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

"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."
