Photo Emerges Of Cosplaying Couple Shot By Police At Melb Swingers Party

The family of the man shot and tasered by police in a Melbourne nightclub during ‘Saints and Sinners Ball‘ swingers party say the incident should never have happened, as the man continues to be treated in hospital.

Channel 7 released CCTV footage earlier today which showed that police opened fire only 32 secondsafter they entered Inflation nightclub, shortly after shining a light on the man, who was dressed as The Joker, while he engaged in a sex act on the couch with a woman dressed as Harley Quinn.

The grandmother of Victorian bartender Dale Ewins, 35, told The Age that the family were in shock. “All I will say is that it never should have happened,” she said. 
Police say that Ewins pointed a gun at them, though staff dispute that account, claiming that he was just pulling his pants up, and that the so-called ‘gun’ was just a costume prop. Ewins was shot in the back, and his 37-year-old partner Zita Sukys received a leg wound.
Victoria Police Northwest Metro superintendent Lisa Hardeman told the media “when the firearm was levelled at police and police asked the man to drop it, police at that stage were not aware whether it was an imitation or a real firearm.”
