A young man has died after a fight broke out in the Greek neighbourhood of Oakleigh last night.
Police were called to Atherton Road at about 7.55pm, following reports of a fight between a group of people.
Emergency services arrived and a man, who is yet to be identified, died at the scene.
Four other men were arrested a short time after, with homicide detectives now investigating the circumstances of the death.
Member for Oakleigh, Steve Dimopoulos, sent his “sincerest sympathy” to the family and loved ones of the young man in a statement last night.
“This is tragic. No person should ever die in these circumstances… This is a location that is loved across Melbourne. It is on the map as a safe place for people to dine and come together. There is no place for violence in our community. Not now. Not ever,” Mr Dimopoulos wrote.
