One person is dead and several others are injured after a fight among teenagers sprawled over three locations, with two people stabbed and a group of pedestrians mown down by a car in suburban Perth.

One person has died and several others have been injured after a fight among teenagers sprawled over three locations in the southern Perth suburb of Canning Vale.

Two people were stabbed in a fight at a McDonald's on Thursday afternoon and a car later ploughed into a group of pedestrians nearby, killing one.

Police say the incidents are linked.

A major police operation is underway in the suburb, with an area around Eucalyptus Boulevard closed off as part of the investigation.

Police said they were called to Ranford Road about 3:15pm where a "large group" of youths were fighting at a liquor store. The fight then continued at the nearby McDonald's.

Police said two people had suffered stab wounds.

About an hour later, a car ploughed into pedestrians near a bus stop on Eucalyptus Boulevard, injuring several more people and killing one.

Two people have been taken into custody, Inspector Tony Hill told journalists at Eucalyptus Boulevard on Thursday night.

"There's a number of incidents involving people fighting which culminated in a fairly serious incident at a fast food outlet on Ranford Road and then another serious incident that occurred here behind me in Eucalyptus Boulevard in Canning Vale," he said.

"At this stage we believe that they are linked, some of the parties are involved in a number of the incidents."

He said the ages of those involved was not known, but said they were youths.

"The incident behind us involved a motor vehicle that has collided with a number of pedestrians," he said.

"One of the pedestrians is now deceased, and one of the pedestrians also has serious leg injuries."

Police have cordoned off the area and set up three separate crime scenes — one at the fast food store, one on Eucalyptus Boulevard and another at a nearby Dan Murphy's liquor store, where it is believed the fight began.

A red sports-style car could be seen at the Eucalyptus Boulevard scene with its windscreen shattered.

Shoes were also strewn by the side of the road.

Police from the homicide and major crash are investigating.

A witness told Channel Nine it was a very distressing scene, saying he saw teenagers lying face down, "probably unconscious".

Local resident Lloyd Rego, who has lived in the area for four years, said the neighbourhood was generally quiet.

"It's definitely been a quiet area and a good area to live, so I'm really surprised and shocked at what's happened here," he said.

However, he said he had heard reports of young people getting into trouble.

"At times at night this place could get a little dodgy with youngsters."

St John Ambulance said the matter was reported to them at 4:20pm and they took five people to Royal Perth and Fiona Stanley hospitals, two of them as priority cases.

Police have urged anyone with information to contact them.
