Video shows shooting outside Yarraville clubhouse of Bros bikie gang

THUMPERRRR's picture

A gunman who seriously wounded two members of the Bros outlaw motorcycle gang outside its Yarraville clubhouse remains on the run, but detectives from the armed crime squad and Echo taskforce have obtained video footage of the attack last month.

Closed-circuit television cameras captured the shooter sprinting up Campbell Street in an industrial precinct of Yarraville, after alighting from a dark-coloured car in nearby Kent Street. 

Dressed in a grey hoodie, the man stops outside the clubhouse, assumes a shooter's stance and blasts off several rounds from a handgun. According to an audio recording, seven shots are fired in total.

More than 50 gang members and associates had attended a function on the night, with several congregating outside.

A 38-year-old man from Altona and a 37-year-old man from Herne Hill were treated by paramedics at the scene, after the shooter ran back down Michael Street before fleeing in a car.

Both men were rushed to Royal Melbourne Hospital - one with life-threatening injuries after being shot in the stomach, and the other in a serious condition after being wounded in the leg.

Within seconds of the shooting, up to a dozen members of the Bros give chase on foot, while others scramble into cars or jump on motorcycles.

The posse returns to the clubhouse about 10 minutes after the attack, which occurred at about 1.40am on Saturday March 5.

Detectives from the Echo taskforce are examining if the shooting outside the Bros clubhouse was linked to another shooting on the same night involving a man in Hadfield, who was shot in the leg.

In May 2014, the Bros gang was forced to remove all CCTV cameras from its clubhouse and implement 13 other security measures under an anti-fortification order slapped on them by the Echo taskforce.

The cameras, which had tilt, pan and zoom capability, were removed two months later, along with steel bollards, gates, and reinforced glass. 

The order was issued because police stated there were "reasonable grounds" to believe the clubhouse has been or is likely to be used for, or in connection to, a crime, or to conceal evidence. 

At the time, the clubhouse was only the second in the state to have received such an order.
