Notorious bikie gang members charged


Three suspected members of the Notorious bikie gang face charges after investigations into the shooting of a high-ranking member in Sydney's west last year.

State Crime Commands Gangs Squad detectives arrested the three on Tuesday after raiding five homes.

Police were also investigating an alleged assault at a cafe in Mount Druitt a day later.

A 23-year-old Blacktown man went to Merrylands Police Station where he was charged with affray and assault occasioning grievous bodily harm with intent.
