Police investigate bikie links in overnight shootings

Police have set up a task force to investigate two bikie-related shootings that have occurred in Brisbane overnight. There are several sets of shots that hit the Bandidos club house in Stanley Street at Woolloongabba early this morning. The pump-action shot gun fired six shots at a time hitting the Bandidos sign and two windows. A tattoo parlour across the river in Milton was hit with around four shots sometime after 4:00am (AEST). No one was injured in the shootings. One woman said she heard shots at Woolloongabba at about 4:00am. Some Bandidos Club members are at the scene to inspect the damage. Police are also investigating possible links to a car fire at Mt Coot-tha a short time later. Staff at the Milton parlour, Inksanity, have taken to social media to assure their customers everyone is safe. Workers have thanked people for their concern on the parlour's Twitter and Facebook accounts, and say everyone there is safe. These are the latest in a recent spate of drive-by shootings targeting outlaw motorcycle gangs. Over the weekend Gold Coast police named individual members of the Finks outlaw bike club, along with some of their criminal histories. Queensland Police have applied to the Supreme Court to have the Gold Coast chapter of the Finks declared a criminal organisation.
