A man has killed one person and wounded two others in a knife rampage in Melbourne that police are treating as a terror attack.

Law enforcement officers responding to a auto fire in the city's central business district were "confronted by a male brandishing a knife and threatening them", Victoria police superintendent David Clayton told reporters Friday.

Footages of the incident showed police struggling for at least a minute to contain a man wearing a dark tunic as he lunged, slashed and stabbed wildly at two officers.

Police shot a knife-wielding man after he fatally stabbed one person and injured two others in the centre of Australia's second-largest city.

"Trolley Man, the hero Australia needs", one woman said on Twitter shortly after a series of videos of the attack began to circulate online.

Police cordon off Bourke St following a stabbing incident in Melbourne.

At a press conference, a police spokesperson said there are no links to terrorism at this stage.

Later, a man was arrested after he was shot at the scene and taken to a hospital under police guard in a critical condition.

People also told local media that they saw police trying to calm down the attacker.

Victoria premier Daniel Andrews urged the public to avoid the crime scene, and thanked responding police officers.

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

Police said the driver got out of the vehicle, which then caught fire, and attacked three bystanders with a knife. The man follows with the trolley and pushes it towards the attacker again, as a police officer opens fire. The bomb response unit was called and the vehicle was rendered safe.

The message over the loudspeakers says: "This is Victoria Police, please evacuate the area".

"Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is asked to go to Melbourne West Police Station to make a statement".

Warning text messages were sent after the attack and police sealed off the downtown area, usually busy with shoppers and diners on a Friday evening.
