Bandidos bikie takes own life in Brunswick




Luke Bray took his own life on Monday.

A MAN found dead at a Melbourne motorcycle clubhouse has been identified as a former Australian Army soldier turned Bandidos bikie.

Friends and family are mourning the death of Luke Bray, 30, who took his own life at the Bandidos MC’s Brunswick headquarters on Monday.

Mr Bray had served in the Army, including time in Afghanistan, before returning to his home city and recently settling in Brunswick.

Friends took to social media to remember “Lukey boy”.

“Words cannot even describe the pain and emotion that I and I’m sure everyone is feeling in the news of Luke passing,” close friend Melanie Henderson wrote.

“The memories and your friendship I will treasure forever.

“You protected me in so many ways as a best friend would — we were always there for one another.”

Mel Yu wrote: “Sending you so much God damn love Luke Bray, will miss that wild smile of yours and your passion for tattoos, beds and bikes.

“I wished (sic) life didn't feel so heavy.”

Police were called at 7.20am on Monday after ­reports of a gunshot from inside the Weston St building.

Fellow Bandidos members met at the club soon after, visibly distressed by the tragedy.


Mr Bray had been battling mental health issues.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
