A man has killed one person and wounded two in a knife rampage in Melbourne that police are treating as a terror attack.

A man has been arrested after setting a auto on fire and stabbing three people - one fatally - in central Melbourne, Australia.

Another dramatic video shows two presumably plain-clothes police officers arresting the attacker after he was shot.

"Three people have been stabbed, unfortunately one of them is deceased at the scene", he said.

Police who were in the area arrived promptly on the scene after reports of the burning vehicle. The man was shot in the chest by police.

"A second person has been taken to hospital with a head injury".

"From what we know of that individual we are treating this as a terrorism incident", Ashton told reporters, adding that the police counterterrorism command was working on the case, as well as homicide detectives. "It's very early in the stages of the investigation", Supt Clayton said.

As is common in these type of events, people are less concerned about finding out details about the attacker than they are about learning about Trolleyman and another man who tried to help by brandishing a chair.

The officers were seen trying for at least a minute to detain the man peaceably as his attacks on them continued, before one officer shot him in the chest.

"In the midst of tragedy, you can find such pride in the work of by-standers to come to the aid of others", said Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.

"He is someone who is accordingly known to Victoria Police and the federal intelligence agencies", he said. One of the victims died from his injuries. "They are in a suspected critical condition", they said.

"And then I heard one loud bang".

"It's so chaotic", witness Sarah told Tom Elliott.

"Equally, those strangers, people who were by-standers who knew nobody involved, who stepped in without a moment's hesitation, to render support and assistance to the courageous members of the Victoria Police, they too are people whose qualities make all of us proud as well".
