BREAKING: Third man charged over Gold Coast double murder

A third man has been arrested over the alleged murder of former Gold Coast bikie Shane Ross and his business partner in 2019.

The 32-year-old, who is an alleged Lone Wolf bikie, was today extradited to the Gold Coast from Grafton in northern NSW.

He’s been charged with two counts of murder ‘serious organised crime’ circumstance of aggravation and one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle.


It comes almost a-year-and-a-half after 36-year-old Shane Ross and 47-year-old Cameron Martin were gunned down near Martin Shiel Park in Tallebudgera.

Mr Martin was found dead in his Mercedes Benz around 9.30pm on October 18, 2019, after his vehicle crashed into a tree off Tallebudgera Creek Road.

Investigations revealed he had suffered a gunshot wound to his chest shortly before the crash.

Just three days later, the body of Shane Ross was found in bushland on the corner of the Pacific Highway and Tallebudgera Creek Road.

A 42-year-old man and a 34-year-old man, both from Coolangatta, are already before the courts charged over the alleged murders.

Regional Crime Coordinator for the South Eastern Police Region Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith said it has been a “complex and difficult” investigation.

“Detectives will leave no stone unturned,” Detective Superintendent Smith said.

“We will continue to investigate to ensure all of those involved in these murders are arrested and brought before the courts”.

The 32-year-old man is due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court tomorrow.
