The President of the Life and Death bikie gang, was shot in the leg at the The Naked Gun 2 Studio on George Street in Windsor

09:35 |

31-year-old man, reportedly a member of the Life and Death bikie gang, was shot in the leg at the The Naked Gun 2 Studio on George Street in Windsor about 5.45pm yesterday.He was taken to Nepean District Hospital in a satisfactory condition, police say.The man was reportedly under police guard last night.A worker in Windsor, who did not wish to be named, said she and a male companion were walking to her car down a laneway near the parlour when she heard yelling followed by a gunshot.
"I heard some arguing and then a gunshot and I took off," she said."There was a lot of screaming and yelling and I took off up the hill. I wasn't going there," she said.
The woman said she saw someone "skinny with a bikie vest on" walking to a motorcycle after a single shot rang out. She could not identify any gang colours on the vest.
"When I went to the car I saw someone and I saw he had a gun. It was dark, I just saw a gun silhouette," she said."He looked at us and I was terrified. I thought he was going to shoot me."The woman said she drove off and called police but was yet to be interviewed by officers.She said it was well known around town that it was a Life and Death bikie who had been shot."That bikie gang is renowned and associated with that shop I believe," she said.Some workers in the area did not want to talk about the shooting but a woman who works close by said she emerged from her shop last night to see a crime scene on George Street."We were quite surprised when we walked out last night and saw all the police," she said."I saw crime tape and I thought, 'This is really bad, someone's been hurt.' "Despite the wounding, the woman said she was not intimidated by the Life and Death gang."They are a bunch of pussies," she said. "They are not like your Hells Angels or your Comancheros. They are just would-be bikies. They don't frighten me, put it that way."Police were reluctant to discuss the gang connection to the crime today or comment on reports that the injured man was the president of the Life and Death outfit.
Windsor police Detective Inspector Brett McFadden confirmed the shooting but said "I'm not going anywhere near that" when asked if the man was a member of the gang.A State Crime Command spokeswoman said: "I understand that the gangs squad is providing assistance to local police."A NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said paramedics treated the man for entry and exit gunshot wounds to his leg before transferring him to Nepean District Hospital.
In March, police were called to a Newcastle street to break up a brawl between three Life and Death members and 10 bikies from the larger Rebels gang over a turf dispute.Knives, an extendable baton, a broken pool cue and pieces of timber were used in the fight and two Life and Death members were charged with affray, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of an item that could be used as a weapon.
In March 2000, police raided the Life and Death gang clubhouse in Windsor and arrested seven members on drugs and firearms offences and seized $500,000 worth of drugs and another $500,000 in goods.
