From Morning Report, 6:09 am on 15 April 2019

One man is dead and another is fighting for life after a drive-by shooting outside a nightclub in Melbourne's inner south suburb of Prahan (prah-ran) early on Sunday morning. A 37-year-old man who worked as a security guard at the venue died in hospital. Two other security guards and a patron were also wounded and taken to hospital. A black Porsche SUV was seen speeding from the scene and was later found burnt out. Police said at least four people were hit by shots fired from the car. Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper of the Melbourne homicide squad said it was too early to say whether the attack was a targeted one, or whether the shooter had been inside the club earlier.
