Police were allegedly shot at and threatened with a car in a horror attack in Melbourne’s north west early on Tuesday morning.
Officers were on patrol in Sunbury, about 42 kilometres from the CBD, about 3.15am when shots were fired at their car.
They fled to a nearby McDonald’s for cover, but were followed by the armed thugs, who allegedly fired more shots at their car before ramming the restaurant with a silver sedan, which then sped off from the scene.
Backup was called to search for the vehicle and help the four officers and three McDonald’s employees escape the restaurant safely.
A 33-year-old homeless man and a 26-year-old and 18-year-old from Sunbury have been arrested and are helping police with inquiries.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with further information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppers.com.au.
