A drive-by shooting out of a popular Melbourne nightclub in Australia early Sunday left one man dead, another critically wounded and two others injured, police said. At the same time, 3 policemen were seriously injured and 2 people are being treated as fragile. Presently all the injured have been admitted to the nearest hospital for treatment.
In fact, firing on Sunday night in Melbourne has foiled the incident of Port Arthur in the minds of the people. That firing took place in the suburb of Prayan in Melbourne at about 3:00 pm. Homicide Inspector Andrew Stamper said, “The evidence found at the scene is that the gunmen targeted the crowd standing outside the nightclub in a car. The people were seriously injured. ‘ In this incident, a security guard died on the spot, while a security guard was seriously injured.
There is currently no arrest in this case. The police investigating the incident have come forward from all the witnesses in the case and have requested to register their case. According to the police, at the moment, the police are escaping from entering into a terrorist attack and will issue an official statement only after the investigation. A spokesman of the police told AFP that there was no possibility of the firing incident being linked to terrorism.
They are investigating whether a black Porsche SUV seen leaving the area is related to the shooting. The car was later found burnt out. “These things are still incredibly rare and there’s nothing to indicate at the moment that this is part of a broader agenda,” said Andrew Stamper of Victoria state police.
