Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad have today released CCTV of a vehicle they are searching for following a non-fatal shooting in Hallam last month.

Police have been told a group of men attended a home on Nettle Drive shortly after 6.10pm on Sunday, 6 October and demanded entry to the premises.

An altercation has taken place between the group and a 54-year-old Dandenong man and 34-year-old Hallam woman who were at the property.
