A man has been arrested at Sydney
International Airport this morning and charged over the
fatal shooting of a high ranking member of the Hells
Angels bikie gang.
Zeljko Mitrovic, 45, was shot dead on
January 15 at his transport business on Hassall St,
Wetherill Park, following a heated confrontation with up
to seven men. A 31-year-old man – an employee at the
business – was also wounded in the incident.
Strike Force Lambourn was set up to
investigate the murder. At 6.30am, a 21-year-old man was
taken into custody by Homicide Squad detectives after he
landed on a flight from Indonesia.
He was taken to Maroubra Police
Station and charged with murder and reckless grievous
bodily harm in company. The man was refused bail to
appear at Parramatta Local Court later today.
Last month, detectives charged a
33-year-old man over the same murder after he handed
himself in at the Australian Consulate in Kuala Lumpur.
