  • Bradley Welsh was reportedly shot in the head

Armed officers were sent to Chester Street in the city's west end at about 20:00 on Wednesday.

Welsh was made famous after playing a gangland boss in Trainspotting 2 who owns several seedy saunas around Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Evening News editor Liam Rudden honored Welsh on Twitter writing, "Remembering Bradley Welsh as a man who was passionate about what he believed in and his community".

A police spokesman said: "Police in Edinburgh received a report of a disturbance in Chester Street at around 8pm on Wednesday 17th April". Officers will continue to provide a high-visibility presence in the area to engage with the public, offer reassurance and gather information that can assist with this investigation.

He died at the scene, a statement added.

Bradley and Irvine were close friends, and the author wrote a role for Bradley into the script of T2. "Thanks for making me a better person and helping me to see the world in a kinder and wiser way".
