A stabbing attack at a crowded mall in Sydney, Australia, left six people dead and injured at least two others on Saturday afternoon. The rampage was the deadliest act of mass violence in the country since 2017.

The authorities said that the attacker, who has not been publicly identified, was shot and killed by a police officer. There was no longer a threat to the public, the police said.

Here’s what we know about the shooting so far.

The attack happened at Westfield Bondi Junction, a popular shopping center in the Eastern Suburbs, an affluent area of Sydney near the coast.

Witnesses described a chaotic scene as shoppers noticed people running and saying that someone in the mall had a knife. As the attacker moved through the mall, the police said, he began to stab people.

Five people died of their injuries at the scene and one died later in a hospital, the police said. Among those hospitalized, some in a critical condition, was a 9-month-old baby.

Multiple calls were made from the mall about a stabbing, beginning shortly after 3:30 p.m. local time.
