Man shot by police after stabbing spree in Melbourne city center

Policemen block members of the public from walking towards the Bourke Street mall in central Melbourne Australia on Nov 9 2018

A person has died and two others are injured after a knife-wielding man unleashed an attack in Melbourne on Friday afternoon.

Victoria Police Superintendent David Clayton said when police arrived at the scene they were confronted by a man brandishing a knife and threatening them.

"People who'd seen it had told me they heard shots being fired, and everyone heard an explosion that was like the petrol exploding".

"Police shot the male and he is now in a critical condition and under guard in hospital".

Ashton didn't give the Somali attacker's name, but said the man had "family associations that are well known to us".

It has now been confirmed one person has died.

At least two members of the public bravely stepped in to help police.

Police said they knew the identify of the suspect but declined to name him due to "operational reasons".

They said the suspect, who was hospitalised in a critical condition, had no known links to terrorism.

The Guardian reported that BHP has suspended rail operations in Western Australia but expects to resume them in about a week. Western Australia's premier, Mark McGowan, told ABC that it was clear "extraordinary measures" had been necessary.

Social media footage showed the attacker trying several times to stab one of the officers before a second officer drew his gun and a single shot was heard. The militant group also claimed responsibility for a deadly siege in the city in 2017 when a Somali man was killed by police after taking a woman hostage.

The body of a victim lay under a sheet on the street. The man follows with the trolley and pushes it towards the attacker again, as a police officer opens fire.

Melburnians have praised the bravery of police and Trolley Man as they come to terms with yet another horrific incident on Bourke Street.

An Internet Cafe on Bourke Street called OP Gaming has just let their patrons out after nearly two hours in lockdown.

Three people were stabbed, one fatally, following Friday's attack on Bourke Street.

State Premier Daniel Andrews described the attack as "evil" but said the city would not be bowed.

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

The police cordoned off the area and warned people from coming near the area.
