Police are searching for a gunman following the shooting of a 30 year old man in Melbourne’s south east this morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the shooting, a house on Fulham Close, Hampton Park, at around 9.30am.

The victim was taken to The Alfred hospital with a lower body gunshot wound, where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

Police believe the attack was targeted.

Neighbours say there was a police raid at the same Fulham Close address two months ago.

7 News reporter Paul Dowsley told Tom Elliott police are still at the scene of the shooting.

He said two other people were in the house when the shooting occurred.

A black Commodore with the number plate ‘JAILB8’ was pictured outside the house.

Paul Dowsley said it’s not clear whether the car is connected to the house or the shooting.
