Update: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) issued a statement claiming responsibility later on Friday.
A man who set a car on fire and stabbed three people – one fatally – in the Australian city of Melbourne has died in hospital after being shot by police.
Authorities now say they are treating the attack as a terror-related.
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 are in hospital, one in a suspected critical condition. The suspect has not been named.
Police said they were “not looking for anyone further at this early stage”.
“We are now treating this as a terrorism event,” said Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton.
