    A woman has been shot dead in Melbourne’s west this afternoon, police said.

    A West Footscray man aged in his 50s is in custody and currently assisting police with their inquiries.

    Police were called to Clive Street following reports of a man and woman arguing in the street just after 2.30pm.

    A short time later a number of gun shots were heard within the vicinity of Clive Street.

    A spokeswoman for Ambulance Victoria said the woman was dead when the ambulance arrived at the scene.

    Witness Gary Savage of West Footscray said he saw a blonde woman lying on her side in the middle of the street with a pump-action shotgun laid across her chest.

    More to come.

  2. Yeah read it just before. WTF is going on indeed! I am from the West and it has been quite good in the last few years until recently.

    Obviously too much focus on hooning, the real criminals are being ignored.
