Police have made two arrests after a father of two was shot dead in broad daylight on Monday. The man has been identified.

Police have made two arrests over the fatal shooting of 54-year-old father Brian Laidlaw in Melbourne.

A 43-year-old Doveton man and 21-year-old Yarraville woman were arrested in Noble Park on Wednesday afternoon.

No charges have been laid.

Mr Laidlaw was shot and killed in a carpark near Brunswick St, Fitzroy around 4pm on Tuesday.

Police believe the shooting happened after Mr Laidlaw left his nearby flat and met with two people inside a parked Audi sedan.

He was shot in the back while exiting the vehicle.

“The male then left and was shot as he alighted from the vehicle. There’s been some dispute, we don’t know why or what for,” Detective Superintendent Paul O’Halloran said.

Police said Mr Laidlaw appeared to know the two occupants of the car.

Victoria Police is still investigating the circumstances surrounding what led to the fatal incident.

Passers-by called triple-0 after seeing Mr Laidlaw lying on the street with life-threatening injuries.

Ambulance crews treated him, but he died at the scene.

The incident is not believed to be linked to any recent gang violence.

A friend took to social media to share her grief over Mr Laidlaw’s death.

“You will be immensely missed,” Chloe Barenot wrote on Facebook.

“You are one of the people that truly believed in me and encouraged my abilities.”

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or who has dashcam footage to come forward.
