The nine-month-old daughter of Dr. Good was stabbed in the attack and is in a critical but stable condition at Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Dawn Singleton, the 25-year-old daughter of multi-millionaire businessman John Singleton, was among the dead.

The male victim worked as a security guard at the shopping centre, NSW Police said.

Two of the six victims were from overseas and have no family in Australia.

At least twelve others, including nine women, two men and Dr. Good, were hospitalized after suffering stab wounds in the attack.

NSW Premier Chris Minns said many people were “running towards danger”, including Inspector Amy Scott, who shot dead Cauchi on the spot.

“To the general public who cornered and confronted a murderer at Westfield Mall, showing what I would call instinctive courage under terrible circumstances,” he said.

‘And of course Inspector Amy Scott, who ran into danger and showed professionalism and courage and without doubt saved many, many lives in the last 24 hours.

“We are deeply grateful to the men and women who stood up in Bondi Junction.”

NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb echoed Mr Minns’ sentiment and praised the state’s first responders for their efforts.

“My thoughts go out to the people who were in the shopping center and, as the Prime Minister said, showed great courage yesterday.” she said.

‘But also to the emergency services and of course to the police officers who responded to this very traumatic event.’

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Anthony Cooke said the man was known to authorities in his home state.

“We have received no evidence that we have recovered, no information that we have gathered that would indicate that this was caused by any particular motivation, ideology or otherwise,” he told reporters on Sunday.

“We know that the perpetrator in this case had psychological problems.”
