Detective Superintendent Janet Stevenson said it has been a “very challenging investigation” with “significant effort from Victoria Police which has been led by the Homicide Squad”.
“This is a significant arrest and an important step forward, however this investigation remains live and is far from over,” she said.
“This shooting was an extreme display of violence in a public setting and those involved had complete disregard for innocent members of the community.
“The fear that this type of offending generates along with the high risk of innocent parties being killed, seriously injured or traumatised is unacceptable and deeply concerns us.”
