A GUNMAN is on the loose after a man was shot several times in the head in Melbourne this afternoon.
The Herald Sun reports police and ambulance crews have converged on the Union St shopping strip in Ascot Vale.
The man, believed to be in his 60s, was shot multiple times in the head outside a house in Union Rd, Ascot Vale shortly after noon.
Paramedics arrived at the scene, after being called to the scene by police, but the man died.
A witness to the shooting is reportedly being treated for shock at the scene.
A Victoria Police spokesperson confirmed no one had been apprehended over the shooting.
The location is in the vicinity of an attack earlier this year on Desmond "Tuppence" Moran as he sat in a car in the driveway of his Ascot Vale home.
Mr Moran is the brother of Lewis Moran and uncle of Jason and Mark Moran who were killed in Melbourne's underworld war.
