Homicide Squad detectives are appealing for public assistance to help locate two men they would like to speak to in relation to a shooting at Point Cook on 21 February.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of 30-year-old Mark Dixon (who also sometimes goes by the surname Murphy) and 26-year-old Jack Harvey who are believed to be in the Byron Bay area in New South Wales.

The Daily Telegraph reported police raided a Suffolk Park motel room, on the outskirts of the town, yesterday but it had been vacated.

Investigators would like to speak to the two Point Cook men following the shooting of a 53-year-old man at a Spraypoint Drive home about 11pm.

Sid Morgan, the Hills Shire, Sydney estate agent, suffered serious head injuries after a shot to his forehead in an incident on a Point Cook cul de sac last Thursday evening.

Two men have been questioned by Victoria Police over the shooting that left Morgan fighting for life in the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Sid Morgan, 53, was shot in the head in Spraypoint Drive at Point Cook about 11pm.

Neighbours said they heard an argument before a gunshot went off.

The Sydney man remains in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Two Point Cook men, aged 29 and 30, were arrested on Saturday however have since been released without charge.

Dixon is described as 180 cm tall, with a medium build, short brown hair, a fair complexion and speaks with an Irish accent.

Harvey is described as having a slim build, short brown hair, a goatee beard and also speaks with an Irish accent.

Anyone who sees Dixon or Harvey is urged not to approach them and to call Triple Zero (000).

In 1995, Morgan, who previously went by the name of Said, was a detective in NSW police force in the 1990s.

He became aware of allegations that his brother-in-law, Mansour Suha, had been molesting three young girls, two of them his young relatives. He then shot Suha, shooting the man six times.

In 1996 a jury rejected the Crown argument that it was a revenge shooting, finding Mr Morgan instead acted out of fear for the girls' safety.

A jury took 33 minutes to decide his actions were justified. 

He was however refused reinstatement into the NSW police force.
