T2 Trainspotting actor Bradley Welsh dies after shooting

A man who starred as a gangland figure in Trainspotting 2 has been shot dead in Edinburgh’s west end.

Bradley Welsh, 48, who also featured in an episode of Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men, was killed in an incident in Chester Street at 20:00 on Wednesday.

Police have confirmed that the death is being treated as murder.

One resident said he was told someone had been shot in the head and people were instructed to stay indoors as the street was cordoned off.

Armed officers were sent to the scene after receiving “multiple reports” of a firearm discharge.

Police later confirmed that a man had died at the scene after being found in a common stairwell with a serious injury.

Isolated attack

Police said early investigations indicated that it was an isolated attack.

Welsh starred alongside Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle in T2 Trainspotting, playing the gangland figure Mr Doyle.
