No one was injured during the incident.

Two unknown men and a woman were heard shouting in the area prior to the shots being fired, police said.

A man and a woman were also seen leaving the area in a red-coloured car shortly after the incident.

An worker at Escagrill said the restaurant was not the target but had been hit by a bullet that ricocheted. 

‘We’re in the wrong place at the wrong time,’ the staff member told the Herald Sun.

‘If the police didn’t come, we wouldn’t have known it happened.

‘We never even heard the shots going off.’ 

Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
