– A man has been charged with murder over a shooting at a Melbourne car shop that police say may have resulted from a burglary gone wrong.
Police say the shop owner, a classic car restorer, had decided to sleep over in his Thomastown business in the city’s north on Wednesday night, but rang triple-0 about 2:30am on Thursday to report a fatal shooting.
A man in his 20s was found dead at the scene.
Ivan D’Angelo, 37, from Thomastown, was last night charged with one count of murder and was remanded in custody to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Detective Inspector John Potter said earlier police had been provided with an account of the shooting that indicated it may have been a burglary gone wrong.
Mr D’Angelo had told police he was sleeping at his Thomastown premises after working late when he was disturbed by three men about 2:35am yesterday.
A man was shot dead, and it is believed two others – one possibly seriously injured – fled the scene.
Late yesterday afternoon, homicide detectives took Mr D’Angelo back to the factory to reenact events.
He could be seen pointing from a second-floor window.
The dead man, believed to have been shot once in the head, was found in a pool of blood on the footpath outside the premises in Bostock Court.
He was not carrying any identification.
Several business owners said they believed Mr D’Angelo lived at the factory after separating from a partner in nearby Reservoir.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
