Police have charged a second man in relation to the fatal shooting at a Prahran nightclub in April.

Detectives arrested 18-year-old Jacob Elliott, this morning, after executing a search warrant at his home.

He has been charged with two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

Mr Elliott made a tearful appearance at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this afternoon, but remained silent.

In court, the lawyer of the accused said there “was a misunderstanding in the arrest of his client.”

He did not apply for bail and will face court again at a later date.

Yesterday police also charged a 25-year-old man in relation to the shooting.

The man was charged with accessory after the fact to murder, prohibited forearm possession, stalking, and making threats to kill.

He is due to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

Two people were killed in the shooting at Love Machine nightclub on April 14, and four others were injured.

The investigation into the crime remains ongoing.
