    Police shoot boy's attacker at sports oval

    The Australian ‎- 1 hour ago

    Police shoot boy's attacker at sports oval in Tyabb ... after he reportedly beat a boy to death with a cricket bat at a sports oval in Melbourne's southeast tonight.

    But this is the article and I can't see the reference to the bat. Maybe they are reconfirming?

    Emergency services remain at the scene of a police shooting Tyabb that occurred earlier this evening.

    Emergency services were called to attend the oval on Frankston-Flinders Road around 6.30pm after a boy sustained head injuries.

    He was treated by paramedics at the scene but has died.

    A confrontation with a man aged in his 50s then took place and the man was shot in the upper body.

    The exact circumstances surrounding the incidents are yet to be established.

    A number of police units are on scene including local police, local detectives and the Homicide Squad.

    The investigation into the incident will be oversighted by Professional Standards Command.

    Unconfirmed reports of the circumstances of the #TYABB shooting are just horrible. Will wait for police to speak before we share them.

    What is happening in Melbourne? In all my years here I have never seen so many senseless deaths. I live in the south east where this has happened, Last week it was the women murdered in her yard just down the road from me. Today at my local shops I came out to my car only to see a drug deal going down.

    This man has been shot. I hope these policemen are treated fairly and don't have to go through all the scrutiny that other cases have done. R.I.P. to the young boy. So Sad.

    Officer Doug Freyer says he doesn't know how the mother of the 12yo killed at Tyabb will be able to cope.

    My God, what is wrong with the father? Drunk, Drugs, family dispute? Psychiatric problems?

    How could someone beat someone so visciously that they kill them? That takes some doing.
    The poor mother must be beside herelf. We will just have to wait for more information to come out.
