A Car Is Burning in Bourke Street Mall

A Car Is Burning in Bourke Street Mall

Police said a Somali immigrant killed one person and wounded two others in a rush-hour stabbing spree in the heart of Australia's second city Friday, labelling it a terrorist attack.

"From what we know we are treating this as a terrorism incident", he said at a press conference.

'I heard a massive explosion, the vehicle is completely alight, ' she said.

As flames engulfed the vehicle, the man attacked them and they shot him in the struggle, he said. The militant group said in a statement released through its Aamaq media arm that the man was "one of Islamic State fighters" and carried out the attack in response to IS calls for attacks in countries that are part of the global coalition fighting the militants in Syria and Iraq.

"Respects to Trolley Man and also to those very calm cops who remained very professional and surely prevented more people from being injured", one person wrote online.

"At the same time, passers-by were calling out that members of the public had been stabbed", Clayton told media in Melbourne.

Witnesses say they saw the man drive a truck into the Target centre and as the auto caught fire he tried to fight and stab police and bystanders.

The officers were seen trying for at least a minute to detain the man peaceably as his attacks on them continued, before one office shot him with a weapon.

Nearby police arrived shortly at the location and the man, wielding a knife, attempted to assault police officers.

A man, believed to be the driver, stabbed three people and was then shot by police.

Policemen stop members of the public from walking towards the Bourke Street mall in central Melbourne, Australia, November 9, 2018.

Forensic investigators combed through the scene late Friday, where the dead victim's body lay covered in a white plastic sheet.

Melbourne resident Meegan May tweeted: "Chaos in Bourkest as a guy seems to have set his auto on fire then attacking police with a knife".

Premier Daniel Andrews described today's incident as "an evil and awful thing" and condemned it.

"I kept watching", said witness Tony Nguyen, after what he described as a "car bomb".

Some cordons were lifted later, though the immediate crime scene would be sealed until Saturday, police said.

"This is Victoria Police, please evacuate the area".
