Police appeal for information following firearms incident in Kensington

Police have released an image of a man they wish to speak to following a firearms incident in Kensington last month, Victoria Police say.

Emergency services were called to an address on Derby Street about 12.20pm on 8 June following reports of several shots being fired.

No one was injured during the incident.

Police were initially told there were two offenders perceived to be of African appearance, however investigators now believe two Caucasian males were involved.

They also believe one of the males was armed with a high calibre weapon while the second had a hand gun.

A black hatchback vehicle was seen in the area at the time of the shooting and one of the males may have been dropped off near Kensington Railway station shortly after the incident.

Police spoke with a 29-year-old Flemington man the following day in relation to the incident, however he was released without charge.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that the shooting was a targeted incident in retaliation to a separate assault matter.

One of the males with a firearm in this incident is understood to have been the victim of that assault.

Detectives from Melbourne North Crime Investigation Unit are investigating the incident and are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

They have also released a digital composite image of a man they wish to speak to in relation to the incident and police are keen to hear from anyone who can provide information about the man’s identity.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
