  • Policemen block members of the public from walking towards the Bourke Street mall in central Melbourne Australia

One person has been killed on a central Melbourne street where a knife wielding man was left in a critical condition after being shot by police.

Victoria Police said the unnamed attacker is in "critical condition" at the hospital following the incident, which left one of the victims dead. "A man was arrested at the scene and has been taken to hospital under police guard in a critical condition", it said.

He then started attacking people with a knife, stabbing two people, before he was shot by police.

Another person at the scene said: "I saw people running, screaming". Their condition is not yet know.

It's understood a third person has also been taken to hospital.

Footage has emerged showing the suspect being restrained by two men, at least one of whom is a police officer.

Speaking at the scene, Superintendent David Clayton said: "Police quickly responded to the incident".

The incident began with police getting reports of a auto that had burst into flames on the Bourke Street in Melbourne. Large spots of what appears to be blood are near the body alongside a pair of men's black lace-up shoes.
