BIKIE CLUB SHOOTING – Monday August 5 2013

– Hostile bikies have clashed with police after their Yarraville clubhouse was targeted by unknown shooters early on Sunday.
Police were called to the Bros Motorcycle Club’s clubhouse in Campbell Street about 12:30am on Sunday, following reports of gunshots.
Officers discovered the clubhouse had been riddled with bullets, with the building’s front door and garage roller-door both bearing multiple bullet holes.
Detective Senior Constable Brett Van Der Vliet told Fairfax Media that nobody was inside the clubhouse at the time of the shooting and no injuries had been reported. “We don’t know what the motives are behind [the shooting],” he said. “We haven’t had any problems with the Bros in Yarraville for a very long time.”
The possibility of the shooting being an attack from a rival motorcycle gang could not be ruled out, Senior Constable Van Der Vliet said.
Tensions were high at the clubhouse following the shooting, with police forced to arrest one man after he became aggressive during a press conference on Sunday afternoon.
A 27-year-old Truganina man is expected to be charged on summons with behaviour offences.
Senior Constable Van Der Vliet said police had no details about the shooters at this stage, but CCTV footage would be viewed.
