The mall has been evacuated and police cars are blocking off entrance points. Witness, Olivia, told AAP she was having a meal in the Myer centre when three men in plain clothes confronted another man nearby. "The guy ripped off his shirt and pulled out a gun and pointed it at them," she said. "The other three men who looked like plain clothes police pulled out their guns and screamed at the man to get down on the ground. "They kept screaming 'Get on the ground, get on the ground' but he ignored them and kept walking around."


Sounds like a stand off between prison escapee and plain clothes detectives.

Here you go.
www.abc.net.au...

This one reads about a handgun and no shots fired.


Witnesses have reported seeing a man wearing shorts and no shirt and carrying a gun.

Heavily armed police with weapons and Tasers have been seen in the area. There are no reports of any shots being fired.

How hard is it to get a handgun there? Actually are they even legal and if they are what are the regulations on them?

No apologies necassary amigo
It happens... So this story seems to be an odd one, no? He rips his shirt off, and starts telling some guy to get down? Or was it multiple men? I'm a little confused as it seems early on here we have conflicting information. Eh, whats new right?

Well, if they would just hurry up and outlaw guns in America, things of this nature wouldn't happen in the rest of the world.

After all, I don't see why Australia can't use Mexico's excuse as well.

Ok people, one thing you should understand about Australias guns laws is that not all guns were outlawed, just Semi-Automatic rifles. Not sure about handgun laws but I'm sure a bloke like this shouldn't have one.

I am wondering if any drugs legal or illegal are involved. I wonder if he might be medicated to "fix" mental problems what ever stuff they give for depression and such.
