Police wound 'armed' man and bystander at Melbourne fancy-dress party

Two people have been shot by police during a freaky altercation at a nightclub costume party in Melbourne's CBD.

Melbourne radio station 3AW reported that officers were told by bouncers that the reveller, who was dressed as the Joker from the Batman movies, was not a threat and that the gun was a toy.

A witness has further alleged to The Age that the Joker & Herley Quinn masqueraders were engaged in a "sexual act" in front of other party-goers when police stormed the scene.

The man allegedly drew a handgun from his trousers and pointed it at approaching officers and would not drop it when asked.

Superintendent Lisa Hardeman has told the ABC that venue security had reason to believe the gun was a fake and had passed that info on to police.

She would not comment on reports the man was also tasered.

Inflation owner Martha Tsamis took to social media on Saturday to defend the venue, claiming staff did not call police and the pair shot were doing nothing wrong.

A Facebook user who claims they work at the venue and were there last night posted regarding the incident.

'When a firearm is pointed at you in these circumstances, police are not sure at that stage whether it is real or an imitation, ' Superintendent Hardeman said.

'Security had no concerns prior to the incident, and advised police on attendance that they were more than happy to deal with any issues.
