Victoria Police are investigating whether a fatal shooting
outside the Bandidos Motorcycle Gang clubhouse last month may
have been the work of a rival gang or an inside job by other
Police now have CCTV footage of the shooting at Geelong,
south-west of Melbourne, and it shows two vehicles.
Bandidos gang member Ross Brand, 51, was shot dead and another
man was seriously injured in the incident outside the Bandidos
clubhouse in the Geelong suburb of Breakwater on October 22,
about 6.10pm (AEDT).
Homicide squad Detective Inspector Steve Clark on Friday said
police believed the shots were fired from a white Toyota Hilux
dual-cab utility truck.
A second vehicle, a white Hyundai Terracan station wagon, could
be seen outside the clubhouse 10 minutes earlier.
He said police had footage of both men being shot.
"We have looked at vision of the shooting," Det Insp Clark said.
"Both of those vehicles are an integral part of our
investigation and I would urge anybody who may have any
information in relation to the location of the vehicles, or the
occupants of the vehicles on the night in question, to contact
Crime Stoppers," he told reporters.
Det Insp Clark said the footage showed the Hyundai station wagon
drive in from the left-hand side of the screen and leave about
10 minutes before the Toyota Hilux also drove in from the left
and the shooting occurred.
He said police were following up a number of angles, including
the possible involvement of the rival Rebels Motorcycle Club.
"There has been a history between the Bandidos outlaw motorcycle
gang and the Rebels, clearly that's one avenue of inquiry that
we're looking at, but it's not the only one," he said.
He said police also were investigating if the shooting was part
of a power struggle within the Bandidos.
"I'm not aware of the internal politics of that group, but
clearly it's a part of the investigation, we're looking at the
Bandidos motorcycle gang," he said.
Det Insp Clark would not say where the CCTV footage of the
shooting came from, but said it had been in police possession
for "a couple of weeks".
"There are a number of CCTV cameras in and around that area and
we're going through all of that as we speak," he said.
He did not say how many people were in each of the two vehicles,
or whether they were male or female, but said there was more
than one person in each.
"We've identified the make and model of the vehicles, we believe
that there was more than one occupant in each vehicle, I don't
really want to speculate any further than that."
The man injured in the shooting is now recovering out of
hospital and has spoken with police.
He said people could contact Crime Stoppers anonymously, and
police could discuss witness protection options with anyone who
came forward with information
