According the Brisbane Times, officers with the Critical Incident Response Team allege that Dale Ewins, 35, pointed a fake gun at one of them after the team entered the Melbourne nightclub Inflation during the annual “Saints and Sinners” event at 3:54 a.m. Saturday morning.

Authorities say they rushed into the establishment after receiving reports of an armed man inside the venue, the Herald Sun reports.

However, several witnesses dispute that Ewins had been holding the firearm replica when he was shot in the chest.

His partner, Zita Sukys, 37, was hit in the leg.

Both are in stable condition.

In the hour before the incident, police were reportedly told by a security guard that the gun was plastic while another security guard claims they ignored the suggestion to first send in an officer undercover.
