  • Melbourne knifeman shot dead after killing one person, injuring two others

At least one person was killed and two others wounded in a rush hour stabbing incident in Melbourne's central business district, police said on Friday, 9 November.

Police say they shot and critically injured the assailant after he attacked and stabbed a number of passers-by, killing one and injuring two others late on Friday afternoon in the centre of Australia's second largest city.

Shortly after 5.20pm, a body is seen lying under a white sheet on Bourke Street, near the entrance to Russell Place.

However, the exact reason for the stabbing and burning of the vehicle has not been ascertained as of yet.

Instagram user nohsoohyun86 uploaded this shocking video of the incident.

The counter-terrorism command has taken a lead role in the investigation and police have set up a three-block-wide exclusion zone.

He stabbed three people before being confronted by armed officers who eventually shot him in the chest.

Two officers got out of the auto and attempted to engage him.

Another witness on a passing tram told ABC Radio it seemed police had been trying to subdue a man who was waving something.

Australian authorities said they were treating the attack as an act of terror and revealed that the suspect was originally from Somalia and was known to intelligence agencies.

The suspect was rushed to the hospital under police guard and later died, Ashton told reporters.

According to the police, the pickup truck that caught fire contained several barbeque gas cylinders and was part of an apparent terrorist attack.

It is not yet known how the fire began or whether he was carrying an explosive device, although the bomb squad was sent to secure the area.

The group often claims responsibility for attacks by individuals inspired by its message.

Police will investigate a possible copy-cat motive.

He is under guard in hospital in a critical condition.

A driver who rammed into pedestrians at a mall close to Friday's incident killed at least four people in January of a year ago.

Appearing with police, Premier Daniel Andrews said "this is an evil, terrifying thing that's happened in our city and state today".
