One dead, two injured, in Melbourne stabbing incident

Policemen stop members of the public from walking towards the Bourke Street mall in central Melbourne Australia

Melbourne was also the scene of two fatal car-ramming incidents a year ago, but neither was linked by police to terrorism.

The suspect is then shot by police and falls to the ground.

Police said that there was no known link to terrorism at this stage and that "we'll keep an open mind as to whether there's any link". One of the victims later succumbed to the injuries, while two others are still receiving treatment.

The attacker reportedly torched his auto before the vehicle burst into flames.

A fearless bystander dubbed "Trolley Man" has been praised for his selfless actions in his attempt to halt a knife-wielding man who'd stabbed three people in Melbourne's Bourke Street.

Clayton confirmed that police officers, clearly seen confronting a man in digital footage of the incident, are "okay".

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

A Melbourne-based reporter tweeted that nearby buildings were placed on lockdown by the police following the incident.

Police warned people to avoid the area, although the suspect is believed to have been detained.

The police have also ruled out terrorism links.

The attacker has since died from his gun wound while under police guard in hospital.

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.

Three people have been stabbed, including the fatality.

Melbourne is Australia's second largest city, a cosmopolitan metropolis of nearly five million people famed for its cafes, bars, restaurants and high standard of living.

Police turn their attention to the victims, one of whom was still lying on the street. "The bomb response unit have cordoned off the area".

One witness, Sarah Krug said she was heading to the night noddle markets when "all hell broke loose".

Police are urging any witnesses to attend Melbourne West police station to provide a statement, while anyone with vision or photographs from the incident is being urged to upload footage to the Victoria Police Facebook site. Most sat in three rows of chairs, before being called to one of six tables set up by police.

Another witness said: "Big fire".
