A man is in hospital after a suspected drive-by shooting near a Prahran nightclub this morning.
Police were called to Chapel Street about 5:30am after reports of a shooting.
Witnesses told police shots rang out when a car drove past one of the strip’s nightclubs.
Police and specialist police attended the scene to help control the large number of people leaving a venue near the scene of the shooting.
The ABC understands the shooting took place in a laneway off Chapel Street near Chasers nightclub but the club had closed at 4:30am and everyone had left the venue before the shooting occurred.
A crime scene has been set up and anyone with information or anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
More to come.
