No evidence NSW shooting victim was bikie

Police enter Tweed Heads Hospital

A man believed to be a bikie has died from a gunshot wound after being left outside Tweed Head hospital.

He had a single gunshot wound to the torso and died despite attempts by emergency staff to save him.

The linking of the shooting to a brawl between gangs at a Tweed Heads venue on State of Origin night sparked another round of political sparring between the Queensland government and opposition over their crime-fighting credentials.

The heavily-tattooed victim was dropped outside the Tweed Heads hospital on Saturday afternoon by a woman believed to be his girlfriend.

Inquiries by investigators attached to Strike Force Varndell continue with police urging any witnesses, or anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers.

Tweed Byron Local Area Command Superintendent Wayne Starling said the murder arrest came after a four-day cross-border police operation.

'There's no evidence directly relating this to outlaw motorcycle gangs, ' Det Insp Starling said.




About 20 Bandidos were at the Seagulls leagues club when Lone Wolf members arrived with guns, knives and baseball bats, 7 News reported.

A man is taken to the police watchhouse at Southport after an arrest for the slaying of "enforcer" Ace Hall.

"There is no suggestions in this instance of bikie or gang activity", he said.

It comes as the LNP Opposition accused the Government of "rolling out the red carpet" for the bikies, claiming they have watered down protection laws.

Grace Grace, a Palaszczuk government minister, in turn denied there was a problem with bikie crime on the Gold Coast.

The Queensland government says police have adequate resources to combat bikie violence on the Gold Coast following recent incidents.

"I'm limited by what I can say at this stage but I can say they (the victim and the suspect) were known to each other", he said.
