Police investigate Carrum Downs shootings

Armed Crime Squad detectives are today releasing CCTV footage of two vehicles as part of their investigation into two firearms incidents at an Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang clubhouse in Carrum Downs last year.

On Friday, 27 September 2019 a dark-coloured SUV was seen driving past the Outlaws OMCG clubhouse on Titan Drive shortly after 7.45pm.

Police believe that a number of shots were fired from this vehicle into the clubhouse, in what appears to be a targeted attack.

A number of people were standing outside the property at the time of the incident, however no one was injured.

A plain-clothes police unit in an unmarked vehicle were in the area at the time and heard the shooting, then began patrolling the vicinity to try and locate the offenders.

As they drove past the clubhouse, a number of shots were fired at the unmarked police vehicle.

The two detective senior constables inside the car at the time were not physically injured.

At the time of the second shooting, a large number of people and vehicles were outside the Outlaws clubhouse.

Police have obtained CCTV footage of the second incident, which shows a person pointing a firearm at the police car and discharging a number of shots.

On Saturday, 28 September, emergency services were called to an incident in a laneway at the western end of Hallam Valley Road in Dandenong South where a dark-coloured Audi Q7 SUV was on fire.

CCTV footage from that area shows the SUV and a silver VW Golf both turning right on to Hallam Valley Road from South Gippsland Highway, shortly before the vehicle was set alight.

The silver VW Golf then left the area and it’s likely the offenders for the vehicle fire were in that car.

Detectives believe that the Audi Q7 SUV is likely to be the same vehicle used in the initial shooting at the Outlaws clubhouse the night before.

It had been stolen from an address in the western suburbs earlier in September 2019.

Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad are investigating and are today releasing CCTV of the two vehicles in the hope anyone can provide information on their movements around the time of the shooting and car fire.

They are also keen to speak to anyone who may have information about the current whereabouts of the silver VW Golf.

Anyone with information about the vehicles or those responsible for the shootings is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
