There it is...this must have either been a movie 'stunt' because everybody knows there are no gun in Australian citizen hands.Witness Zali Nash told ABC radio the gunman was "as cool as a cucumber" as he shot the victims.
"He just went bang, bang, bang, there was no mucking around," she said. "There were five shots fired and the people went straight down to the ground. There wasn't even a scream, just a whimper."
Another witness, who watched the incident from his office building, said the killer left the scene unhindered. "He just walked off," the man told Channel Nine news. "It was like you were on a movie set."
Police locked down the area, evacuating office buildings, to track the killer and they later found a handgun and a dark jacket at a construction site which they said they were confident belonged to the gunman.
In recent years Melbourne has experienced a bloody tit-for-tat gangland war, which began in the late 1990s and has claimed 29 lives, including several people shot in public.
But one of the worst shootings in the city was the Hoddle Street massacre in August 1987, when seven people died and more than a dozen were injured when a former army cadet opened fire.
Anyway my first though was where were the police and the 'crime prevention' cameras?
But hey the cops later found a gun and dark jacket which gives them confidence...
