A group of friends in a car were chased by a gunman in a high-speed pursuit across Melbourne’s south-east suburbs this morning.
Police said the group had been speaking with another carload of friends in a car park near the South Melbourne Market when a man fired a gun at their car, about 4.30am today. No one was injured.
Police said the car that was fired at, a black Holden Astra, sped from the car park, at the intersection of York and Ferrars streets, but was chased by the gunman’s car.
Detective Senior Constable Chris Sheen said the Astra sped down the Monash Freeway with the gunman’s car in pursuit, and that both vehicles reached speeds of up to 170km/h.
He said it appeared the pursuing car eventually turned around, ending the chase.
A 22-year-old man who was in the Astra reported the incident at Narre Warren police station.
Detective Senior Constable Sheen said police were still collecting statements and the Astra was being examined for evidence.
Police ballistic experts had also been called in.
“We are still sorting through the evidence at this stage,” Detective Senior Constable Sheen said.
“At this stage I am not sure what the argument was about, simply that there was an argument and a firearm was discharged.”
