Search for ute after fatal shooting in Prahran

Police are today releasing CCTV footage of a vehicle they are searching for following a fatal shooting at a Prahran nightclub in April.

Emergency services were called to the venue near Little Chapel Street and Malvern Road about 3.20am on 14 April following reports a number of people had been shot.

It’s believed a black Porsche SUV drove past the night club and a person in that vehicle discharged a number of shots at people outside the premises.

A 37-year-old man died in hospital later that day, while a 28-year-old man passed away in hospital on 19 April.

Four other people were injured during the incident, including a 26-year-old man who presented himself to hospital with non-life threatening injuries believed to have been sustained at the shooting.

A 50-year-old man and a 29-year-old man both sustained non-life threatening injuries.

A 20-year-old woman was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It is believed she may have fallen at the scene of the shooting and hit her head on the ground.

Investigators are still following up a number of lines of enquiry to determine the exact circumstances of the shooting and what had led to it occurring.

A black Porsche SUV was later found burnt out on Highpark Drive, Wollert just before 4am on 14 April and it’s believed this was the same vehicle seen driving past the night club at the time of the shooting.

Detectives conducted a significant canvas of the area for CCTV footage and have located vision of a maroon Ford utility leaving the vicinity immediately after the arson of the Porsche used in the shooting.

Investigators believe this maroon Ford utility may be related to their enquiries.

The vehicle has a maroon body and silver tray, with a distinctive bar across the back of the tray area.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the vehicle on the night, or has knowledge of the owner or where the vehicle is now to come forward.

They’re also appealing for anyone who has CCTV or dashcam footage of this car, who hasn’t yet spoken to police, to come forward.

Police are asking anyone with information or footage of the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or alternatively make a confidential report online at
