Three shot after gunman opens fire at Bandidos barbecue in Melbourne

THREE men have been shot in a targeted drive-by shooting outside a bikie clubhouse in Melbourne’s north.

Police say a volley of shots was fired into the Bandidos’ Brunswick headquarters from a white car around 11pm on Friday.

It’s understood the outlaw motorcycle gang was hosting a barbecue at the Weston Street clubhouse when the gunman opened fire.


Three men who police say were standing outside the clubhouse were shot.

The victims, a 54-year-old Altona man, a 43-year-old Coburg North man and a 26-year-old man from Gladstone Park were all taken to hospital with serious gunshot wounds to the legs.

Police say they believe the victims were targeted due to their affiliations with the Bandidos.

The white car from which the bullets were fired sped off immediately after the shooting.

Detectives from the Armed Crime Squad and Echo Taskforce were joined by the Critical Incident Response Team in launching a daring daylight raid on the clubhouse this afternoon.

With the building surrounded, heavily-armed officers stormed the bikie headquarters with their guns drawn.

Those inside were detained and marched outside onto the street where they were each quizzed by detectives.

A number of items including CCTV footage were also seized.

Investigations into the incident are continuing.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
