The family of the attacker who stabbed six people at a hotel on West George Street on Friday afternoon have said that they are "shocked" at his actions. 

Abadlla Adam was shot dead by an armed officer on Friday afternoon after he stabbed six people at the Park Inn Hotel. 

As a picture of the 28-year-old is released, his family told Sky News how the attack is not the "mentality" and "moral nature" of Adam's community in Sudan.

A friend of Adam told how Adam had been "miserable" and was suffering from "mental issues" as he awaited asylum in Glasgow. 

Almadi told how Adam had been treated "improperly" at the Park Inn Hotel, where the food was of "bad quality", casing Adam to suffer "abdominal disturbances" and "vomit every time".

His friend also told how Adam was kept in his room for one month, which had a profound effect on his mental health.

A resident at Park Inn warned staff that a man had plans to carry out an attack in the hotel.  

Siraj, 22, told ITV: "The boy [told] me I will attack. I reported that to the hotel reception. 

"I said I don't have evidence but we need to be careful because we don't know what could happen. 

"He said 'I will attack' so everyone must take it seriously."

"He said 'they hate me, I hate them, they are against me'."

Siraj tried to calm the man, whom he did not know very closely, down.

He added: "I said to him nobody hates you."

Concerns had previously been raised about the condition of a number of hotels, including the Park Inn, which were being used to accommodate asylum seekers during the pandemic. 

It's understood 100 people were accommodated in the West George Street hotel before the attack took place. 

Mears, however, insisted on Wednesday, two days before the Park Inn attack it had kept people safe from Covid-19, claiming the “unprecedented arrangements” it made during the pandemic are “proving effective”.

The group has since said it is "deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic events in the heart of Glasgow".

A statement reads: "We are contracted by the Home Office to provide housing and support services to asylum seekers in Scotland.

"We will not anticipate a live police investigation, but we can confirm that the attack happened in a hotel where we are housing asylum seekers during the lockdown period.

"We will provide more details as we are able to and our priority is to look after the welfare of our service users who will no doubt be traumatised by this terrible event.

"Tonight, we also think of the staff in the hotel and our colleagues at the scene – all are in our thoughts."
