Gunshots ring out in early morning attack, one injured
POLICE are combing through CCTV vision at a neighbouring property as they investigate the early morning shooting and assault of four people in Tarneit.
Police were called to a home in a new housing estate on Conway St about 4.15am after residents reported sounds of a disturbance and a gunshot.
A man, believed to be aged in his 30s, was treated for upper body injuries, including suspected gunshot wounds and taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a stable condition.
A woman, also believed to be in her 30s, was treated for upper body injuries and was taken to The Alfred hospital in a stable condition.
Two more people were assessed and taken to The Alfred hospital in a stable condition.
Neighbours of the victims are understood to have an extensive security system, which is currently being assessed by police.
The house is in a new housing estate, with a number of homes under construction nearby.
Local tradesman Robert said he regularly had to replace doors after break-ins into homes still under construction on the street.
"You'll get to work in the morning and someone will have ripped the door off it's hinges looking for something to steal despite the fact the house isn't finished," he said.
"Other than that it's been a pretty quiet street I haven't noticed any problems for the people living there."
Police are yet to lay charges.
