One dead after Australia shooting outside nightclub

A general view of Melbourne where police said multiple people were shot in the city’s Prahran district

"This is just a horrendous act".

Melbourne and locals alike find Love Machine nightclub in Prahran to be a popular part of Melbourne R&B and house music over 3 floors.

"Those gunshot wounds were from a fairly close proximity.so, you know. horrific injuries".

Detectives have blocked off Malvern Road between Chapel Street and Little Chapel St as they scour the area for clues.

Police are investigating if a black Porsche SUV seen leaving the area is related to the shooting.

Local media reports that four were injured, with two in critical condition.

Police say a 28-year-old man remains in critical condition; three other men, aged 26, 29 and 50, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the incident.

It's believed one of the men has facial injuries.

The police confirmed on Sunday night others were also injured in the shooting including a 20-year-old woman who fell at the scene and hit her head on the ground.

The man who died in the shooting was an employee of the nightclub. "The exact circumstances are still being established", they said. I'll post updates in the comments section below...

A security guard from Love Machine said the music inside the R&B nightclub was so loud that patrons and staff inside had no idea anything was occurring outside during the shooting.

The Aussie police have urged members of the public with video footage of the incident or information to help with the investigation.

Australia has a low rate of gun crime, a fact most experts attribute to the tightening of laws on the possession of firearms following the massacre of 35 people on the island of Tasmania by a lone gunman in 1996.

A murder-suicide a year ago which left seven members of a family dead in Western Australia was the country's worst mass shooting since the Port Arthur attack.
