Several shots were fired at a house that had children inside during a home invasion in Hanmer Springs last night.
Police said there were a number of adults and children in the house when the shots were fired about 9.30pm but nobody was injured by the gunfire.
A man in his fifties was assaulted at the house and suffered a moderate head injury during the incident.
The scene is under police guard.
Police want to hear from anyone who has seen a silver 2017 Nissan X-Trail, with the registration number KQU365, since about 10pm yesterday.
Police said the occupants of the car should not be approached by the public.
