One dead, two injured in stabbing rampage in Melbourne

Videos posted to Twitter and broadcast on television showed a man repeatedly swinging an object at two police officers

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

"Three people have been stabbed, unfortunately one is deceased at the scene, two other victims are now in hospital", police Superintendent David Clayton told reporters at the scene.

Three people were stabbed by the suspect, all of them men, police said.

Victoria state police Commissioner Graham Ashton said the suspect, who was originally from Somalia, was known to police and the incident was being treated as terrorism.

One man charged at the tall attacker with a shopping trolley just before police drew their weapons. He also said police don't think there's any "ongoing threat" to the public.

Only after he was shot did police realize that three members of the public, all men, had been stabbed.

He has been arrested and taken to hospital in a critical condition, police said.

Video shows the dramatic moment the attacker lunges at two responding police officers with the knife.

The vehicle burst into flames before a man emerged and began attacking people in the street, police said. The exact circumstances are yet to be determined at this stage.

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.

One listener said he could see a white sheet over a body.

However, the police has clearly refuted any links of terrorism with the incident.

He has been taken to hospital in a critical condition.

"I didn't realise everyone was running and that's when a really tall black guy was near the vehicle, but then someone was approaching the auto and he was checking to see if everyone was OK, and that's when the dark man stabbed the other guy and that's when I ran".

"Then I heard a loud bang and someone said they could see someone doing chest compressions on someone as an ambulance started coming up the street as well".
