Bikies bill gives police new powers to crack down on drive-by shootings

Police in Canberra will be able to declare a crime scene on private property for six hours without a warrant if its occupants refuse to cooperate, under draft laws introduced into the ACT Legislative Assembly on Tuesday. 

It will also be a crime to shoot at a building, even if it is empty, under the bill to address outlaw motorcycle gang violence in the territory.
