While the full chain of events is yet to be established, it is reported that a man burned a vehicle before starting his knife attack.

Police are seen responding to an incident at the intersection of Bourke Street and Swanston Street in Melbourne, Friday, November 9, 2018. He has been arrested and taken to hospital in a critical condition.

The footage, uploaded to Twitter, also shows pedestrians alternately hovering nearby and trying to make a quick exit from the scene.

'Police response was swift and overwhelming.

"There was a massive flame and bang, just smoke and lots of people", witness Shelley Reid told Nine News.

She said she saw two policemen trying to subdue a man as a auto burned.

"The police officers are OK".

Police said they were not looking for anyone else in relation to the attack.

Her immediate thought was, "Oh no, not another Bourke Street incident", she said.

A MAN has been shot by police after allegedly stabbing three people, killing one of them, and attacking officers with a knife following a auto explosion in Melbourne's CBD. Clayton said there is no known link to terrorism, but stressed the investigation is still in its early stages.

The confrontation occurred moments after a auto burst into flames near the intersection of Swanston Street, in the heart of the CBD.

Guardian Australia's Christopher Knaus spoke to Neil McKellar who said: "We heard the explosion, and we heard gunshots later".

The area has been cordoned off and the public is urged to avoid the area.

"At the same time, passers-by were calling out that members of the public had been stabbed". He's been transported to hospital under police guard.

"A small number of people are being treated for stab wounds".

"Three victims have been located, two appear to have been stabbed to the upper body, the third has died at the scene", Victoria Police said in a statement.
