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.https://twitter.com/LauraTurner_9/status/1259808070340730881
"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.
