Chief Superintendent Faroque Hussain said, Several sites will remain isolated while officers continue their investigations.

Another male member of the family wrote: “To be honest, I can’t even express how I feel.

“I lost my cousin, my childhood best friend, my little sister and my savior all rolled into one !! He was the most loving and caring person in the world and he never stopped smiling! You’ll be a weird girl, Nicole.
“The best girl to ever enter this planet without a doubt, even my little spell is gone.” I will make sure your memory is never forgotten and I will take care of your little sisters for you and your mother, I will love you forever and have a nice day. ‘

NHS Ayrshire and Arran said last night’s ambulances were redirected to Ayr University Hospital.
A hospital witness told the Daily Record: “I was looking for someone when a member of the medical staff was stabbed to death. The whole place is closed.
“The armed police are here and they are sending everyone out of the area.”
Another witness told Ayrshire Live: “There are 10 to 15 police cars on the edge of Moorfield Estate, half a mile from the hospital.
“ It appears that an officer is on duty outside the hospital emergency department. I have lived here for a while and have never seen anything like it.

A police statement late Thursday said the incidents are not classified as terrorist.
The hospital was closed after the first incident, but it was lifted around 10:30 p.m. when the police said it was safe.
On Friday morning, the hospital emergency room and main entrance were open and operating normally, while two police vans full of officers with police bands were left outside in part of the parking lot.
Before the Scottish government’s daily coronavirus briefing at noon on Friday, Deputy Prime Minister John Swinney spoke of the “terrible” events.
He said: “Such a tragedy would never be understandable, but after what happened last year, it is particularly shocking that such an incident occurred in an NHS hospital.
“Apparently there is an ongoing investigation but Scottish Police have confirmed that the Crosshouse Hospital location is safe for patients and staff.
“For now, I just want to thank the police and all the medical staff who were involved in the response to this incident for all they have contributed and express my solidarity with the hospital staff for the trauma they faced.”
“And once again I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of those killed.”
Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted: “Terrible news. My mind hurts
“I also think of all those at Crosshouse Hospital who are already facing the difficult circumstances of Covid. I am also grateful to our emergency services. Are you still following me? @Policescotland? Advice. ‘
