Siege ends with a bang and bite Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A ROSEBUD man who held members of the police special operations group at bay for eight hours, overnight Monday 4 September, is being questioned over the fatal shooting of a 31-year-old man in Rosebud the previous night. The Mt Waverley man was found in the passenger seat of a car with a gunshot wound to his head, 8pm, Sunday 3 September. He died in hospital Monday night. Leading Senior Constable Melissa Seach, of police media, said the 30-year-old, of Ocean St, was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday 5 September after police negotiated with him throughout the night. Two loud bangs were heard before police and a siege dog stormed the house and arrested the man. He was taken to Frankston Hospital and treated for dog bite wounds. The man is in custody and will be interviewed by Homicide Squad detectives over the shooting in Eastbourne Rd.

Doctor’s flu alert: stay clear of hospitals to protect our patients PEOPLE feeling unwell – especially with flu-like symptoms – should avoid visiting friends and family in hospital to limit the spread of the virus. That’s the plea from Peninsula Health, which is urging members of the public to take sensible steps to stop the spread of germs. Those feeling unwell should see their doctor for treatment and minimise their exposure to others.

cause very serious complications. “So, those feeling unwell are asked to please stay at home and avoid visiting our hospitals or rehabilitation services.” To minimise the risk of contracting the virus wash your hands frequently with soap and water, throw away tissues after use, clean frequently-used surfaces and avoid sharing cups, plates and cutlery

without washing. “Everyone should consider a flu jab at the start of each winter to further increase their protection. It is still not too late to receive a flu shot now,” Dr Williams said. Peninsula Health runs Frankston and Rosebud hospitals, and rehabilitation services at The Mornington Centre and at Golf Links Rd in Frankston.
