Two 18-year-old Epping men were arrested nearby a short time later, and another four men – a 20-year-old Epping man, two 20-year-old men from Lalor, and a 21-year-old man also from Lalor – were arrested several hours later.
The 21-year-old and the two 18-year-olds have now been charged with reckless conduct endangering life, being armed with criminal intent, theft of motor vehicle and other firearm related offences.
The 18-year-olds were also charged with home invasion and other alleged related offences for a separate incident which occurred in Narre Warren last month.
The three other men have been released pending further enquiries.
Armed Crime Squad Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Simon Pengelly said incidents involving firearms caused significant concern across the community.
“Rest assured, the indiscriminate use of illicit firearms remains a key focus for Victoria Police. We are committed to targeting those involved in this type of offending and holding them to account,” he said.
The investigation into the shooting remains ongoing.
