Melbourne nightclub shooting: Security guard, 37, dies (Reports).
A security guard has died in hospital following a shooting outside a Melbourne nightclub and a second man is fighting for his life.
Four people were taken to hospital after the shooting outside the Love Machine nightclub in Prahran at 3.20am on Sunday.
Security guard Aaron Khalid Osmani, 37, was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after the shooting but he later died.
Det Insp Andrew Stamper, from the homicide squad, said no stone would be left unturned in the bid to find those responsible.
“Three of the people struck were employees, security guards, and one person was a patron innocently waiting to get in,” Stamper told reporters.
“Those gunshot wounds were from a fairly close proximity … so, you know … horrific injuries.”
Police are investigating if a black Porsche SUV seen leaving the area is related to the incident. The Porsche was later found burnt out in Wollert, a suburb to Melbourne’s north.
Bloodstained clothing left in the middle of a road alongside bullet casings seem to be the focus of detectives and forensic police who are scouring the area for clues. No arrests have been made.
A 50-year-old man and a 29-year-old man both sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Channel Seven’s Sunday Sunrise program spoke with a security guard at the club who said he had no idea there had been a shooting outside and there was no panic inside the venue, which was still operating.
Police are urging anyone with video footage of the incident or information to contact them.
