One person was killed and two others injured following a stabbing spree in Melbourne, Australia on Friday that police say they are treating as a terrorism incident.
Victoria state Police Commissioner Graham Ashton said that Shire Ali, who was shot by police and died in a hospital, had also planned for his vehicle to explode, but barbecue gas cylinders in the back of his pickup failed to ignite.
Later, a man was arrested after he was shot at the scene and taken to a hospital under police guard in a critical condition.
Armed officers carried out raids on two houses in the west and northeast of the city that are linked to his family and associates, but police believe there is no ongoing threat to the public.
Dramatic footage captured from the scene shows officers try to apprehend the man following his stabbing attack.
Video posted to Twitter and broadcast on television showed a man repeatedly swinging an object at two police officers in the downtown area of the city.
Officers were initially called to reports of a vehicle fire near Bourke Street, a busy thoroughfare, at about 16:20 local time (05:20 GMT).
"A second person has been taken to hospital with a head injury".
Footage on social media shows a blue ute up in flames and a man dressed in a black tunic and white trousers menacing police with what appears to be a knife.
But we are, as I say, having counter-terrorism investigations under way. The suspect was shot in the chest by police, Clayton said.
At least two members of the public bravely stepped in to help police.
But as the attacks continued unabated, eventually one officer opted for lethal force, shooting the suspect in the chest.
"They are in a suspected critical condition", paramedics said.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the country would be unflinching in the fight against "radical, violent. extremist Islam that opposes our very way of life".
Addressing the media, Superintendent David Clayton said that the man who attacked the people was shot in the chest and he is now critically injured. She then turned around to see a vehicle on fire.
The attacker, who has not been identified, was originally from Somalia but lived in Melbourne's northwest.
Premier Daniel Andrews condemned the incident as "an evil and bad thing", thanking the police and citizens who responded and adding "as a city, will not be defined by this act of evil - we are bigger and stronger than this".
Markel Villasin, 22, was finishing his shift at KFC on Bourke St as the drama unfolded.
The bystander said that other people had run and hid.
Bourke Street also reopened on Saturday morning, and a Reuters reporter said there was an increased police presence in the area.
