Police said that the shooting occurred outside the venue near Little Chapel Street and Malvern Road in Prahran about 3.20am.

No arrests have been made so far.

A Victoria Police personnel works at the scene of a multiple shooting outside Love Machine nightclub in Prahran, Melbourne, Australia, April 14, 2019. Two other patients, a 50-year-old man and a 29-year-old man, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Australian newspaper The Age said investigators are likely to examine links to a motorcycle gang.

It is learnt that a security guard was shot in the face during the attack, which according to the police appears to be a drive-by shooting case.
