Families in a quiet Narre Warren estate were shocked by the fatal shooting of a man on the evening of 16 August.
The man, with a suspected gunshot wound, could not be saved by paramedics when they were called in after gunfire was reported at Kurrajong Road about 7.40pm.
He was found by emergency crews at a recently leased house.
The next morning, police forensics and Homicide Squad detectives were still working within the crime scene which sealed off Kurrajong Road between Laurus Court and Kallira Crescent.
Shiv Venkat, a father and neighbour, said his wife had heard a “loud bang” at the time.
“I feel scared,” Mr Venkat said.
“We talk about this being one of the safest suburbs and one of the safest estates in Narre Warren.
“It’s a big shock. It’s beyond everyone’s imaginations.
“I feel terrible about the tragedy.”
Another neighbour, Mohammad, heard up to three shots that sounded like fireworks.
“We’re a bit scared that there was some problem with our neighbours last night.”
No arrests have yet been made.
