A knife-wielding man has been shot by police in front of shocked shoppers as a horrified witness described the scene.
The terrifying encounter occurred outside of Lilydale Market in northeast Melbourne around 8.30am on Tuesday morning.
A woman named Pauline witnessed the tense scene and described the incident in a dramatic radio interview.
'He's decided to walking through the carpark, there are guns drawn and they're yelling at him to put the knife down... there are three of them with guns drawn,' she told 3AW.
