Shooting outside US Spy agency headquarters

FOUR people have been rushed to hospital, two of them in a critical condition, after being shot outside a nightclub in Melbourne.

Police said shots were fired from a vehicle into a crowd standing outside the two-story Love Machine club, hitting three security guards at the nightclub and one patron.

A police spokeswoman said the shooting was not believed to be linked to terrorism. On arrival, a 37-year-old Narre Warren South man died of his injuries.

The shot people included two security guards and a patron.

Local media reports that four were injured, with two in critical condition. The footpath on Chapel St has just been closed due to trail of blood up to where one of the victims was found. Clothes and bullet casings were also scattered on the ground.

Police were investigating but no arrests have yet been made.

Investigators were probing links to motorcycle gangs, Melbourne's Age newspaper reported.
