The jury in the trial of two men accused of a bikie-related shooting in Logan, south of Brisbane, has been dismissed after declaring one of the men not guilty but failing to reach a verdict on the second.
Last week, Rebels Motorcycle Club (RMC) members Lucas James Pain and Joshua John Lucey pleaded not guilty in the District Court in Brisbane to one count each of unlawful striking with a projectile with intent to disable, after a rival gang member was shot in the leg.
During a five-day trial, the court heard Mr Pain and Mr Lucey had planned to meet with Bandidos member Harley Cranston and another man at a restaurant in the Hyperdome Shopping Centre at Loganholme in February 2019.
In CCTV footage shown to the court, the group could be seen talking before a brief fight broke out, and Mr Cranston fled the area.
Other vision played to the court showed several men chasing Mr Cranston through the busy shopping centre, before he went to a car and armed himself with a machete.
The court heard Mr Cranston then tried to approach the group in the car park, when he was shot in the thigh by Mr Pain from inside a car.
