Alleged bikie shooter in court

THE Finks bikie arrested for allegedly shooting two people at a Gold Coast shopping centre after an east-coast manhunt has the words "revenge" and "carnage" tattooed on his face. Mark James Graham, who was under heavy police guard when he faced Southport Magistrates Court on Thursday, had a "1%" tattoo under his left eye, a symbol commonly used within outlaw motorcycle gangs. Police extradited Graham from Victoria on Wednesday to face numerous charges, including attempted murder, wounding and dangerous conduct with a weapon. He is accused of shooting Bandidos member Jacques Teamo and an innocent bystander at Robina Town Centre on Saturday. Police failed to gain protection for the bikie and his family and were forced to withdraw an application to suppress the man's images for 72 hours. Police prosecutor Peta Eyschen said the media's use of images of Graham could taint evidence. But Sgt Eyschen withdrew her application after she was asked for further justification from Magistrate John Costanzo. The case was adjourned until June 13.
