    Two men have appeared in court charged with murder, over a drive-by shooting at a Melbourne pool hall in February.

    Ikenasio Tuivasa

    Father-of-five Ikenasio Tuivasa was fatally shot while he was standing outside the All Star Lounge in Ravenhall with his family and friends just after midnight on January 27.

    A 24-year-old Endeavour Hills man was also shot and seriously injured during the incident.

    Hoppers Crossing man Nikola Latuhoi, 26, and Sekomain Vave, 26, of Cairnlea, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday charged with murder and intentionally causing serious injury.

    The court heard text messages need to be translated as part of the prosecution case.

    Latuhoi is facing car theft and drug charges, while Vave is also facing a drug charge.

      The men are in custody, did not apply for bail, and will return to court in November.
