A Car Is Burning in Bourke Street Mall

Man shot by police after stabbing spree in Melbourne city center Police rush to incident in heart of Melbourne CBD

Australians are loving the man who stopped the Bourke Street attacker in Melbourne using only a shopping cart.

Mobile phone footage shows a man, wielding a weapon, attacking officers about 4.20pm.

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.

"We don't believe there is an ongoing threat at this stage, but certainly we are treating it as a terrorism incident".

Video posted to Twitter and broadcast on television showed the man swinging a knife at two police officers in the city's crowded downtown area, while a vehicle burned in the background.

Police said the attacker's vehicle contained several barbecue gas cylinders in the back. "The area has been cordoned off", police said.

He thanked the Victoria Police officers involved and the members of the community who assisted.

One video showed the man repeatedly lunging at police officers with what looked to be a knife. However, police said they are unsure how the fire began.

In December 2014, a 17-hour siege in which a gunman took 18 people hostage in a Sydney cafe ended with two hostages dead and the gunman killed by police.

The pair split after three years, according to People , and were seen together off and on before officially reconciling last year. Ryan has two kids, Jack , 26, from her 10-year marriage to Dennis Quaid , and adopted daughter Daisy , 14.

Police said there was no known link to terrorism.

It's at this point, with the attacker slashing at the police, one of the officers has enough time and space to shoot him once in the chest.

Superintendent David Clayton told the media at a press conference that "passersby were calling out that members of the public had been stabbed".

Two other victims have been taken to hospital with injuries.

"They were around him trying to take the knife out of his hand - I'm pretty sure it was a kitchen knife", he said.

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

"There was a massive flame and bang, just smoke and lots of people", witness Shelley Reid told CNN affiliate Nine News.

Anyone with information is being asked to make a statement at the West Melbourne Police Station.
