A man has been shot in the shoulder after driving at officers and ramming two police cars in Melbourne, while two other men have been shot in separate attacks overnight.

Police approached a man and woman acting suspiciously in a Tullamarine car park, between a McDonald's and an airfreight centre, just after midnight.

The man drove at the officers, then at two police cars, before an officer fired his gun.

The driver, aged in his 30s, was hit in the shoulder.

He has been taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries in a stable condition.

The woman in the car was arrested and will be questioned by police today.

In a separate incident, a 25-year-old man was shot in the back before he went to a relative's house in Melton.

Emergency services were called to the house about 2.30am.

He went to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and refused to tell police the details of the shooting.

In a third incident, just after 4.30am, a 35-year-old man was shot in the foot at Epping during an altercation in a car park at the rear of shops on High Street near Rufus Street.

The thugs fled the scene and he was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
