After a brief struggle, the assailant flees, pursued by several pistol-wielding men, and collapses to the pavement.
The Jerusalem hospital that received the 45-year-old Israeli casualty said he was dead on arrival.
The Palestinian was shot by a civilian at the scene and was in Israeli custody, a police spokesman said.
Palestinian street attacks against Israelis have been sporadic since 2015, a year after peace talks collapsed.
