One man has been killed and three others wounded in a shooting outside a popular nightclub in the Australian city of Melbourne.
Three security guards from the Love Machine venue and a man queuing outside were shot in the incident on Sunday.
“It would appear that shots have been discharged from a car in this area into a crowd standing outside,” inspector Andrew Stamper told the media.
Police say there is no evidence to suggest the shooting is terror-related.
Mass shootings in Australia are rare. The country overhauled its gun laws after 35 people were shot dead in Port Arthur, Tasmania in 1996.
The country saw its worst incident since then last year when seven members of the same family died in a murder-suicide.
