Two men charged with murder over shooting death

Two men will face court in Melbourne today, charged over the shooting death of a man in the city's outer-east.

Police were called to Calrossie Crescent at Endeavour Hills just before 8pm on Monday, after a man was found dead inside a car.

Detectives swarmed the street searching homes for CCTV, as well as gardens and bins for evidence or weapons.

Officers found the body of a man slumped in the passenger seat of a white sedan after neighbours reported the sound of a gunshot.

The man died at the scene, sparking a full-scale manhunt.

A 22-year-old man from Endeavour Hills was arrested a short time later and was taken to hospital under police guard after suffering a medical episode.

A 19-year-old man was arrested at Wantirna a little later.

Both have been charged with murder and will face Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

The shooting occurred outside a house where three children were inside.

Neighbours told 9News they heard a gunshot and scream, as dozens of police flooded the suburban street.

"It was just one scream, one single scream," resident Sonam said.

"I saw so many police officers, 50 to 100 I guess, and the dogs were there, the helicopters, noise and everything.

"It was scary that's why we couldn't sleep last night."

Another resident Ashley Branson described the frightening scenes as a "war-zone".

"I was here about 10 minutes after it happened - drove down the street, cops everywhere, taped off the street, dogs, there were assault rifle police everywhere running through, it was just chaotic ," he said.

Police said the shooting was a targeted attack and there was no further risk to the community.

Anyone with information has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Antibody tests 'not accurate enough', new report says

Some 1.5 million COVID-19 antibody tests bought by the federal government aren't accurate enough to be used in Australia, a report has found.

Antibody tests 'not accurate enough', new report says

Some 1.5 million COVID-19 antibody tests bought by the federal government aren't accurate enough to be used in Australia, a report has found.

The antibody tests were supposed to be distributed soon after they arrived in March, but a report commissioned by Health Minister Greg Hunt said they were not ready for widespread deployment, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Australian National University Professor Carola Vinuesa, one of the report's co-authors, says the tests are not useful.

"At the moment, the quality does not seem to be good enough for these tests to be deployed in large scale," she said.

"The sensitivity is not very good. They are not useful in being able to say: 'you were infected'."

Australia has recorded 6966 coronavirus cases, with 6229 recovered and 97 deaths, according to data released last night.
