Man Shot and Killed Outside Australian Self-Storage Facility


A man was shot and killed Sunday at Jim’s Self Storage in Melbourne, Australia. Police believe the shooting may be related to the rivalry between the Haddara and Chaouk families. The shooting comes a month after the Chaouk family's patriarch was shot and killed in his backyard.

An unmarked police car arrived soon after the shooting at the self-storage facility, located in the Williamstown Industrial Park. A plain-clothes police officer told witnesses to the shooting to go inside the building. More officers arrived on the scene and drew their weapons as a man emerged from the self-storage facility.

Police took the 60-year-old man into custody. His name and the name of the shooting victim were not released.
