Queensland police are investigating the fatal shooting of a high-profile member of the Finks outlaw motorcycle gang on the northern Gold Coast early this morning.
The ABC understands the victim is Shane Bowden, 48, who was charged after allegedly breaching Queensland border restrictions when he arrived from Melbourne last month.
He had arrived in the state with a gunshot wound to his leg after surviving a reported drive-by shooting in Melbourne in July.
Police said Mr Bowden had arrived home from the gym around midnight when he was ambushed in his driveway by at least two other men at a unit complex on Cox Road at Pimpama.
“He’s basically driven into his driveway, hasn’t even got out of his car and he’s been executed,” the South Eastern Police Regional Crime Coordinator, Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith, said.
