Glasgow is on lockdown today amid unconfirmed reports that three people have been stabbed to death in a hotel stairwell by an attacker who stabbed a policeman before being shot by armed officers, APA reports citing Daily Mail. 

The Scottish city centre is on lockdown after Police Scotland declared a 'major incident' at around 1pm before officers with automatic weapons stormed the Park Inn hotel in West George Street.

BBC reporter Catriona Renton is on the scene and tweeted: 'Understood three dead in a stairwell of hotel. Had been stabbed. Police shot suspect'. It is not known if the knifeman is among the dead.
