The men were attending a wake at the house when a fight broke out. 

‘It was very loud, we could hear arguing and fighting on the street,’ neighbour Chrystine Caple told 9 News.

Neighbours said up to ten people were involved in the fight, with one neighbour saying he heard a man shout: ‘I’ve got a gun!’ and ‘You’re going to pay for this.’ 

”There were comments of, “you’ve made me bleed, there’s a lot of blood”.’

Ms Caple said neighbours called the police , saying the incident ‘was pretty scary.’
