    Melbourne attack: Man arrested after fire and stabbings

    [​IMG]
    A man has been arrested after setting a car on fire and stabbing three people - one fatally - in central Melbourne, Australia.
    The attacker was shot by police after confronting officers on a busy city street, authorities said. He was taken into custody in a critical condition.

    The two survivors were taken to hospital - one in a suspected critical condition.

    Police said they were "not looking for anyone further at this early stage".

    It was too early to say if the incident was terror-related, they said.

    Officers were initially called to reports of a car fire near Bourke Street, a busy thoroughfare, at about 16:20 local time (05:20 GMT).

    "As they got out of the car, they were confronted by a male brandishing a knife and threatening them," Supt David Clayton said in a news conference.

    "At the same time, passers-by were calling out that members of the public had been stabbed."
    Police said the scene had been cordoned off, and it was being "made safe" by a bomb response unit.

    Footage circulating on social media shows a vehicle, which appears to have crashed into shop fronts, on fire.

    The police and State Premier Daniel Andrews asked people to avoid the area.

    The incident comes as a man is on trial for a 2017 attack on the same street which left six people dead.

    James Gargasoulas is accused of deliberately driving his car into pedestrians on Bourke Street, hitting 33 people.

    His defence barrister has said he was in a drug-induced psychosis at the time

    What was his motive to commit such a henious act?

    I just checked the guy is a Somali who had links to terrorist groups.

    He had gas canisters in the car. The cops shot him and he died in hospital. To be honest good riddance to this scumbag. It seems this was going to be a terrorist attack if those gas canisters went off we are looking 20+ people or more getting killed or wounded.

    Thank God this terrorist prick was incompetent. He also died in hospital thats good at least our taxpaying money wont be paying him.

    Cops need a shoot to kill order when it comes to scumbags especially terrorists. Dont reason with them shoot them its already dangerous by trying to take them alive.

    I respect our emergency workers a lot, because of them Australia is a safe country, well trained and they are nice to talk to as well, you can approach them and have a conversation with them.
