Police are interrogating bikies across Gold Coast in order to shed the light on the execution of Shane Bowden who was shot dead in the early hours of Monday morning at his rented Pimpama home.

Also, police believe Bowden was targeted due to his falling-out with the Mongols in Melbourne and have gathered intelligence from Victoria’s crack anti-bike police squad, Taskforce Echo.
As Courier-Mail reports, Bowden had fallen foul of the Mongols in Melbourne after he started moving with members of the Comanchero MC, one of the club’s fiercest rivals. After that he was shot and expelled from the Mongols. Bowden did not cooperate with Victorian police and that shooting still remains in active investigation.
Now police suggests that at least two assailants were involved into the murder.

- Hells Angels MC Clubhouse hits the market, comes surrounded with fence, security fences and flood lights
- Man who has been associated with a motorcycle club with ties to the Hells Angels is accused of sexually assaulting the woman after her 16-year-old boyfriend
- In the decision to bring the 89 members of the Hells Angels biker group to justice ,Judge Carlos Alexandre sent 50 defendants to house arrest
- A date has yet to be set for the appeal of the B.C. Supreme Court decision that saw the Hells Angels keep their clubhouses
If police will not successfully move forward in this case in nearest time, detectives may have to resort to Crime and Corruption Commission hearings to extract information.
The closed-door hearings, dubbed the “star chamber”, are used by police during difficult investigations into murders, drug trafficking and other serious crimes.
