Bikie gang member’s brother vows revenge after Gold Coast shooting

The brother of the Rebels Bike Gang member who was shot in Coomera a couple of days ago has vowed his revenge on his brother’s attackers.

Emrah Turkyilmaz, brother of Rebels Bikie member and MMA fighter Gokhan Turkyilmaz, posted on his Facebook page yesterday with a chilling warning.

‘One by one I’m coming’, the status reads.


The comeback vow has sparked concerns that bikie wars could be reemerging on the Gold Coast.

It comes after Emrah’s brother, Gokhan Turkyilmaz, was shot up to eight times at a house in Coomera on Tuesday February 26.

A group of men, wearing balaclavas, are believed to have entered his home on Kumnick street around 8.30pm – with his wife and kids in the house as well – before opening fire and allegedly bashing him.

He received gunshot wounds to his legs, groin and buttocks, and remains in hospital in a serious condition.

Police yesterday confirmed that one of their lines of investigation will be into whether the group of men are from another gang.

Despite the ongoing investigations – relating closely to the Rebels Bikie Gang and the Bandidos – Detective Inspector Brendan Smith says the Gold Coast public doesn’t need to worry.

“Outlaw motorcycle gangs are known for using violence against themselves or within the club, against other clubs, though the main, general public has nothing to be concerned about.

“As an agency, we’re not particularly concerned about any rise in unlawful activity by those gangs.

“They’re monitored on a regular basis and that will continue,” Inspector Smith said.
