One of the victims also died and the two others were admitted to hospital.

It is understood the man stopped his vehicle on Bourke Street, not far from the Target store, and set it alight.

A video shared on Twitter clearly showed the attacker, a dark-skinned middle-aged man wearing a black sweatshirt, viciously swinging the knife he used to stab the civilians at police officers at the scene. His identity was not revealed but police said he came to Australia from Somalia in the 1990s.

Nearly 50 kilometres away, his parents home, a modest brick house on a quiet street in Werribee in the city's west, was also raided in the early hours of Saturday by police for more than 12 hours. "The exact circumstances are yet to be determined at this stage".

The centre of Melbourne's CBD is in lock down. The Bourke Street Mall, including Myer and David Jones stores, have been evacuated. Only the soles of the person's feet were visible.

Police have also urged the public to avoid the Street after witnesses describe a auto bursting into flames.

The resulting fireball could have flung shrapnel 100 metres across Bourke Street, killing and maiming dozens of people.

"The one who executed the ramming and stabbing operation in Melbourne (.) is one of the fighters of the Islamic State and he executed the operation in response to (a call) to target the citizens of the coalition", Amaq said. "This is Victoria Police, please evacuate the area".

A 24-year-old man from Hampton Park and a 58-year-old Launceston man, said to be Tasmanian businessman Rod Patterson, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

One had a neck injury, a second person had a head injury; and the condition and injuries of the third person is unknown. Condition not yet known. He later died in hospital.

Australia's counter-terrorism command has taken a lead role in the investigation and police set up a three-block-wide exclusion zone as forensic investigators combed through the scene.

"Because he was on his stomach, they turned him over to see if he's alright, he was still alive", nearby KFC worker Markel Villasin told AAP.

A police statement said: "Police are aware of an incident in the vicinity of Bourke Street".

May said she was taking the tram into the city center when she heard someone shout "he has a knife".

"The auto started to roll down the road and people started to run towards me".

"It is at times like this when we need to be incredibly supportive and empathetic of all Melbournians because we will respond to this in different ways, and I hope that we can pull together as a community to really support each other".

Police and civilians tried to subdue Khalif before police shot him in the chest.

Witnesses said they heard a big bang and images appeared to show a vehicle on fire.

Friday's attack is a double blow for the city as it coincides with an ongoing murder trial of 28-year-old James Gargasoulas, whose auto ploughed into crowds in the same area in 2017, killing six people.
