Shooting in Melbourne CBD, Australia 18th June 2007

Posted by Adrian on June 18, 2007

A man shot three people (one was killed, two are in a critical condition in hospital) in the Melbourne CBD – about 5mins from where I work. It happened in the morning, apparently 8:30am. The Police shut down a good portion of the CBD, the main banks in the area were locked down, as were some of the main buildings close by to the shooting. You needed clearance just to enter the foyer areas. The police theory is a gunman had escaped and hid out in one of the buildings closer to the scene. So that makes it about 7hrs (now 3:40 pm) where a killer, although now apparently unarmed (he threw away his firearm into a work site) is still lurking around the crime scene, or other parts of the city.
