Terrifying moment police shoot knife-wielding man on Bourke Street

Bennie Garza | 09 November, 2018, 10:02

Several people were stabbed in the Australian city of Melbourne on Friday (Nov 9) and a man was arrested after an incident in the centre of the city crowded with pedestrians and shoppers.

Terrifying footage has emerged of the moment a man lunged at police with a knife in Melbourne's Bourke Street on Friday afternoon. He has been arrested and taken to hospital in a critical condition.

No terrorist link has been made at this stage of the investigation, according to police.

He then started attacking people with a knife, stabbing two people, before he was shot by police.

"One person has been taken to hospital with a neck injury".

A third person has also been taken to hospital, although the nature of their injuries is not yet known.

Footage has emerged showing the suspect being restrained by two men, at least one of whom is a police officer.

The area has been cordoned off and the public are urged to avoid the area, ' they said earlier.

There were large spots of what appears to be blood near the figure, as were a pair of men's black lace-up shoes.

Police say it is yet to be determined if the incident is terror-related.

Witness Fiona told 3AW her friends had seen someone with a knife in the area and she'd been told he'd stabbed a security guard.

Police are telling all members of the public to avoid the CBD, although dozens of witnesses are being interviewed by officers at the scene.

Another said they heard "what sounded like a bomb and gun shot".

About 6pm, Victoria Police Superintendent David Clayton holds a press conference just metres from where the incident unfolded.

The street where the vehicle caught fire was the scene in January 2017 of a fatal but not terror-related incident in which a man drove his auto at pedestrians at high speed, killing six people and wounding about 30.

The incident comes as a trial continues into the horrifying rampage in Bourke St in January previous year.
