Three men have admitted to planning to gun down members of the public in a terrorist attack in Victoria.

Ertunc Eriklioglu, his brother Samed and another man, Hanifi Halis, on Friday pleaded guilty to one charge each of conspiring between November 9 and 19, 2018 to buy a firearm in preparation for an attack.

Documents released by Victoria’s County Court show an attack against members of the public was planned for the ‘advancement of Islam through violence’.

The trio are next due in court on June 15 for a pre-sentence hearing.
