Bourke Street attack: Police officer who shot stabber recounts attack during inquest

A police officer thought he was going to die when he shot and killed Bourke Street attacker Hassan Khalif Shire Ali.

Shire Ali killed beloved Melbourne identity Sisto Malaspina and injured two others in a CBD stabbing rampage on November 9, 2018.

One of the first two police officers on the scene has told an inquest he feared Shire Ali would kill them.

“I thought he was going to kill us,” the officer, who cannot be identified, said in a statement tendered to coroner John Cain’s investigation on Tuesday.

“After I shot him, he stopped. He stopped on the spot.

“The man still had the knife in his hand after I shot him.”
