Police from the Joint Counter Terrorism Team charged a third man today following the alleged terrorist incident in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Brighton on June 5.

Last Monday, gunman Yacub Khayre shot dead Kai Hao, 36, a recently married father, before he held a 36-year-old woman hostage for two hours in an Islamic State-inspired attack.

Khayre, a Somali refugee, was on parole for violent crimes. He was shot dead by police, wounding three officers in the process.

Today a 47-year-old Westmeadows man was charged with a range of firearms offences and appeared in Melbourne Magistrate’s Court.

Police will allege he supply a firearm used in the Brighton siege.

A 25-year-old Gladstone Park man was charged yesterday and a 30-year-old Ascot Vale man was charged on 9 June over the attack.
