SENIOR bikie sources say a simmering internal feud was behind the weekend's brazen public shooting at a Gold Coast shopping centre. Hells Angels leaders have emphatically rejected reports they are at war with the Bandidos, claiming the shooter was a spurned Bandido of Tongan heritage who had turned on clubmate Jacques Teamo after being kicked out of the club last week. There were even suggestions that Queensland's ongoing "bikie war" was being orchestrated from interstate by Rebels. Some have accused interstate Rebels of using southern mercenaries masquerading as Hells Angels to provoke a feud with the Bandidos. A club source said: "It was not the Hells Angels who shot up an innocent bystander or anyone else."
