Pedestrians hit, gunshots heard in Melbourne CBD

Three people have been killed and 20 injured when a car hit pedestrians in the centre of Australia's second-largest city Melbourne on Friday, police and emergency services said.

Australian media reported that the car was driving erratically before the incident, which occurred during the city's busy lunchtime, and at least one shot was fired.

"(The car) was going at about 60kmph, and just went boom," a witness told AAP.

According to another eyewitness the car went off the footpath and a baby in a pram was struck. The witness said the baby flew out from under the car and was being treated by paramedics on the side of the road.

The incident “may have placed person/s in danger of death,” charge sheets allege.

It is not known if the bail justice was made aware of the alleged offences when giving Mr Gargasoulas bail on January 14.

Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday heard warrants for some of the matters were executed following the 26-year-old’s arrest on Friday.
