Glasgow attack: Police cordon off Argyle Street after victim 'covered in blood screaming

Several police vans and cars are parked outside a pub on Argyle Street. A video posted on Twitter showes a pair of shoes and blood on a footpath. Officers were seen standing outside Traders Bar on the corner of James Watt Street.



Police tape extends across the street’s junction with Argyle Street, covering the entrance to the Premier Inn. 

A witness told The Glasgow Times he heard “loads of screaming” before seeing a man lying on the ground. 

He said the man appeared to be covered in blood. 

He told the newspaper: “Literally just happened, was loads of screaming and guy is on the ground with blood all over him.

The police cordon thrown up on Sunday afternoon is less than a mile from the hotel where six people were stabbed last week. 

On Saturday police named the man shot by officers during Friday’s attack at the Park Inn Hotel in West George Street as Badreddin Abadlla Adam, 28, from Sudan.

In a statement on Twitter, Police Scotland said the identity is “based on information the deceased provided to the Home Office earlier this year”.

A police officer was among the six people who were injured in the attack.

Three of the other people who were injured are asylum seekers, Police Scotland said, while two are members of staff.

Constable David Whyte, 42, thanked his colleagues for saving lives.

In a statement posted on Twitter by Police Scotland, Mr Whyte said the scene officers attending the incident were confronted with is something he will never forget.
