A driver waved hello at a man in Australia before shooting him in a supermarket car park in front of his family.

The 30-year-old victim was at a Melbourne Safeway supermarket when he was shot in the thigh last night, said Detective Sergeant Brett Kahan of the armed crime task force.

"The victim believes that the gunman has waved towards him and he's offered a wave back," Kahan saidy.

The gunman, in a black BMW, then pulled up metres away from the victim and asked him what his problem was before firing one shot hitting the victim below the groin, he said.

"There's nothing to suggest there was anything inflammatory from the victim and he's been shot at what could be described as close to point blank range."

The victim was metres away from a car where his cousin's four young children witnessed the attack.

The wounded man was taken to the Northern Hospital where he underwent surgery and was in a serious but stable condition.
