Gangs Squad detectives have now
charged a member of Rebels with the shooting and assault of another member in
Minchinbury earlier this year.
Police will allege that shortly after 8pm on Monday 7 July 2014, a 33-year-old member of the Rebels was shot as he walked into an industrial unit on Grex Avenue, Minchinbury – the clubhouse of the Rebels Mt Druitt chapter.
After being shot three times in the leg, the man attempted to flee the location but was chased down by three men and attacked as he lay on the roadway on Grex Avenue, Minchinbury.
Police and emergency services were called to the location and the 33-year-old was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries. He has since been released.
Detectives from State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad formed Strike Force Rooftop to investigate the incident and this morning (Tuesday 25 November 2014) arrested a 39-year-old man at a home at Bringelly.
During a search warrant, officers seized cash, Rebels paraphernalia and a vehicle for further examination.
The senior member of the Mt Druitt chapter of the Rebels was taken to Green Valley Police Station and charged with discharge firearm with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and participate in a criminal group.
He was refused bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court today.
Strike Force Rooftop investigations are continuing and further arrests are anticipated.
