An eyewitness account

According to an eyewitness Roi Huberman, an ABC TV sound engineer, he sheltered in a store during the incident.

“And suddenly we heard a shot or maybe two shots and we didn't know what to do,” he said.

“Then the very capable person in the store took us to the back where it can be locked. She then locked the store and then she then let us through the back and now we are out."

The area has been evacuated and there are pictures of ambulances and police vehicles at the scene on social media.

Video showed many ambulances and police cars around the shopping center, and people streaming out. ABC reported that armed police were searching a rooftop parking lot.

Paramedics were treating patients at the scene.
