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

“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).
