No gunshot wound

A man’s injuries sustained during an incident at Gwalia Street in Traralgon on Tuesday were not consistent with gunshot wounds, detectives have confirmed, despite media reports.

Emergency crews were called to the residential address just before 1.30pm on Tuesday, 20 June following reports of a serious incident.

Paramedics treated a 36 year-old Traralgon man for head injuries at the scene before he was flown to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Latrobe Criminal Investigation Unit detectives said late last week the injuries were not consistent with gunshot wounds.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have information in relation to the incident.

People with information are urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Latrobe CIU on 5131 5000.

Operation ANPR

Police were out in force across the Latrobe Valley on Friday for Operation ANPR, using Victoria Police’s Automatic Number Plate Reading vehicle.

The joint operation between Latrobe Highway Patrol members and local uniform police targeted traffic offences along Commercial Road, Morwell and Shakespeare Street, Traralgon.

Latrobe Highway Patrol Sergeant Mick Williams said 1824 vehicles were scanned over the day-long operation.

“Eighteen Infringement notices were issued for offences of unregistered, unlicensed, false number plates, seat belt offences and using a mobile phone whilst driving,” he said.

Four people will appear before the Latrobe Valley Magistrates’ Court on charges including allegedly failing to comply with an alcohol interlock condition and drug driving.
