Paramedics started to treat him, but he couldn’t be saved.

Police say the BMW had been following a white Mitsubishi sedan through the suburb, when the Mitsubishi crashed into bollards, blocking Grange Terrace and Johnston Way.

It is believed a man got out of the Mitsubishi and confronted the male driver and male passenger in the BMW, before firing a shot into the car, killing the passenger.

He is yet to be identified.

The male driver and passenger of the Mitsubishi and the driver of the BMW then separately left the area.

No one else was physically injured during the incident.

Authorities arrived and an SES tent was set up around the BMW, which had a hole through the windscreen and shattered glass.

Officers were also examining the crash involving a Mitsubishi about 500 metres away.
