Police shot a Docklands resident last month, following a confrontation about a stolen car.

The man, 35, lived at Victoria Point and was shot in the building’s car park on November 12.

He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Victoria Police commander Rick Nugent said four plain-clothes police officers had been in Docklands investigating a stolen car racket when the shooting happened.

He said police had located a stolen car in the car park and had seen the man approach the car.

According to Commander Nugent, when a police officer approached the man and produced his identification the man pulled out a handgun and threatened the officer.

He said the police officer had taken cover and another officer had come to his aid, shooting the man multiple times.

Witnesses said two other men were seen running from the car park after the shooting and were arrested at nearby Docklands Park.

Following the shooting, police charged a 24-year-old Southbank man with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft and theft of a car.

A 23-year-old Docklands man was also charged with two counts of burglary.

Both men were bailed to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on April 30 next year.

On November 19, the man who was shot was charged with numerous offences including four counts of conduct endangering life, assault police, common-law assault and use of a firearm to resist arrest.

He was also charged with possession of the proceeds of crime and multiple firearm and drug offences.

The man had been remanded in custody and is due to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court on February 18 next year.
