A 21-year older man was taken to hospital and later died.
Police have said the shooting was a domestic dispute and a 20- to 21- year old man has now been arrested.
Detective Sergeant David Dutton said the incident was still being investigated and officers would seek to speak with a man they believe to have taken part in the fight.
“We’ve got a 20 year old male that we’re trying to speak specifically to and we’re asking that he come in and assist us with that,” he said.
“At this stage, we’re just trying to gather the information we need from that man and the people that may have been there and the information that we may have received that night.”
Detective Sgt Dutton described the scene as “very tense” and said they were not sure how the fight had escalated.
“It’s a very, very violent environment,” he told ABC Radio TAFE.
“There’s lots of shots being fired, people are screaming.
There’s a lot of blood.
It’s just a very tense situation.”
Det Insp Dutton would not say if the man involved had a history of violence.
“You don’t know what the consequences of a domestic assault is going to be,” he explained.
“In this particular case, it’s not something that’s going to get us off the hook.”
What’s important to understand is that the person who was involved, he’s been charged with the commission of an offence, but at the moment he’s not charged.
“Police have urged anyone with information to come forward and talk to them.
