Murdered bikie 'unarmed', court told
By ACT court reporter Katherine Pohl
The ACT Supreme Court has been told a Rebels Motorcycle Club member who was shot dead by a 22-year-old Canberra man last year was unarmed.
Russell Field is on trial for the double murder of Gregory Peter Carrigan and Richard John Roberts at his Chisholm home in March last year.
Mr Roberts was a senior member of the Rebels Motorcycle Club.
In a police interview played in court yesterday, Field says two Rebels Motorcycle Club members came to his home and threatened him.
He said he grabbed his gun and blindly aimed at the door, shooting dead Mr Carrigan.
He then shot Mr Roberts outside on the street.
He said he believed the pair had a gun in their car.
But a detective told the court, no other weapons were found at the scene or on Mr Roberts and Mr Carrigan.
In the interview, Field repeatedly says he cannot fathom what has happened, saying one minute he was eating a chicken sandwich, the next he was involved in a shooting.
Field says Mr Roberts had been around to his home before and threatened him.
The court also heard Mr Roberts had a past history of violence and had served time in jail.
The trial continues.
