Melbourne car rampage possible a new terrorist attack?! – 4 people killed and 25 more injured in the car incident in Australia
A small child is among four people who killed in the carnage, after a maroon vehicle seen doing burnouts ‘deliberately’ hurtled into crowds of shoppers.Police shot the driver before dragging him out of a car and arresting him. He was wearing nothing but red underwear when he was detained at the Elizabeth Street end of the mall.
The mangled wreckage of half a pram remains stuck on the bonnet of the car, while what appears to be the other half is further up the mall at a pedestrian crossing on William Street. The baby who was inside it is believed to have died at the scene.
‘A male deliberately drove into pedestrians in the Bourke Street mall, and we currently have three deceased and at least 20 injuries,’ police said. Officers said the incident is believed to be linked to a stabbing of a man in Windsor, in Melbourne’s south east at 2am on Friday.
The 26-year-old man responsible for the rampage in Melbourne’s city centre on Friday has been identified as Dimitrious Gargasoulas.
The Melbourne resident has a history of mental health and drug-related issues and was charged with family violence offences last weekend.
