A bikie boss has been left furious after his family home was targeted in an early morning shooting in Melbourne.

Police are investigating after shots were fired Finks boss BJ Reker's home, on Warrain Street at Frankston, shortly before 5am today.

He was at home with two other adults and his 11-day-old baby when the property was peppered with bullets.

No one was injured in the attack and the shooter fled the scene.

A car was set on fire on Carramar Drive, just five kilometres away, and police are now investigating if it is connected to the shooting.

Shortly after the shooting, Finks Motorcycle gang members were spotted arriving at the property.

They were wearing clothes bearing their insignia and could be seen speaking with detectives.

One of the men was seen wearing a jumper with offensive words written across the back.

The Finks Motorcycle club is known to be one of the most violent outlaw motorcycle gangs in Australia.

They have operated within Australia for decades. 

In 2011, Mr Reker had a case dropped out of court after prosecution witnesses failed to show, The Herald Sun reports.

He was awarded $5000 for costs to cover the case where he was accused of being in a street fight.

Before joining the Finks, Mr Reker was the sergeant of arms at the Rock Machine outlaw bikie group.

Members of the Echo Taskforce, a group dedicated to investigating outlaw bikie gangs, are now investigating if the car fire and shooting are connected. 

Detectives found multiple bullet casings outside the home.

The motive for the shooting has not been released but authorities said it was a targeted attack. Police have not yet released any suspect descriptions. 

Police said they'll be in the area for the next couple of days and will be conducting doorknocks to speak with local residents and answer any concerns.
