EARLIER: A BIKIE who shot a rival gang member and an innocent school teacher inside Robina Town Centre two years ago faces life behind bars. The jury in the trial of Mark James Graham, 28, returned to Brisbane’s Supreme Court to deliver their verdict at 3.45pm on Tuesday after they’d requested more time to consider the evidence.  They’d found the 28-year-old guilty of the attempted murder of ex-Bandido Jacques Teamo and unlawful wounding of school teacher Kathy Devitt.

Graham pleaded not guilty to the charges, but admitted to unlawfully possessing a handgun, after he opened fire at Robina on April 28, 2012.

He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
