One Hopetoun St resident, who asked not to be named, said he saw the drivers of two cars exchange goods in the street before driving to the back entrance of the Mill Point Road house about 10pm yesterday.

"There was a woman in the driveway who was shouting and waving. She was refusing them entry, telling them to go," he said.

The man said both cars then quickly drove away and he heard three shots fired over a 15-second period.

Another neighbour said she saw a man being bashed at the house and called police.

When police went to the house last night, it is believed they found no one there and they have not yet found a victim of gunshots.
