Police are investigating the shooting death of a 21-year-old man in Melbourne overnight.

More than a dozen men, some visibly upset, have visited the Melbourne street where a 21-year man was shot dead overnight.

Homicide detectives are investigating after a number of shots were fired in Roxburgh Park at 12.35am on Wednesday.

A number of men were seen on Coronet Avenue before the shooting and police are urging any witnesses to come forward.

The man died at the scene.

A large group of men, one seen being comforted by police, spent half an hour looking in the front yard of a house on Wednesday morning.

Some looked down a drain and at a dark patch on the road before speaking with a detective in a large huddle.

They declined to speak to the media before leaving the scene.

A neighbour heard yelling, but didn't hear any shots.

Others living a few houses down said they didn't know anything had happened until police arrived.
