A man has been arrested over the fatal shooting of a high ranking member of the Hells Angels bikie gang in Sydney after turning himself in to Australian authorities in Malaysia.

Homicide squad detectives charged the 33-year-old man with wounding and being an accessory after the fact to murder in relation to the Wetherill Park shooting in January.

He had handed himself in at the Australian Consulate in Kuala Lumpur on Monday and was arrested on his arrival in Sydney at 8am (AEDT) on Tuesday, police said.

Zeljko Mitrovic, 45, died after being shot at the Wetherill Park transport business on Tuesday 15 January 2013.

Up to seven men had been at the site before Mr Mitrovic was shot a number of times, dying at the scene.

Another man was injured.

The man was refused bail to appear at Waverley Local Court later on Tuesday.

An arrest warrant has also been issued for 47-year-old Brighton Le Sands man Michael Basanovic
