Kings Cross bikie club, Notorious two drive-by shootings in western Sydney overnight may be linked

13:08 | ,

Police say two drive-by shootings in western Sydney overnight may be linked to a feud involving bikie gang Notorious.The Notorious crime gang has emerged only with in the past couple of years and allegedly has links to the drugs trade in inner-Sydney areas such as Kings Cross and the Oxford Street nightclub district. No one was injured in the shootings - at homes in Doonside and Prospect - but several bullets pierced both homes. A couple in their 60s were asleep in the Doonside house at the time of the shooting while six people, including a 15-year-old and a four-month-old child, were in the Prospect house.
Detective Superintendent Mal Lanyon, commander of the Gang Squad, said the shootings could be linked and the homes targeted could also be linked to criminal groups.
"We believe there could be links between the two premises and known criminal groups," he said. He then identified Notorious, the Kings Cross bikie club, as that group, but would not say if he believed its members had been victims or the offenders in last night's shootings. Detective Superintendent Lanyon said police had taken "a number of steps to address retaliation" between bikie gangs, who have been linked to a string of drive by shootings in the past six months. He said he was aware that pride was one of the factors involved in the feuds. "There's always tension and conflict between rival gangs ... that's the reason we take outlaw motorcycle gangs seriously ... that's why police have a dedicated gangs squad."
A short time after the shootings police found a stolen gold coloured four-wheel-drive on fire in a nearby street. Police believe it may have been involved in both shootings and appealed to the public to contact them if they had seen the vehicle last night. The four-wheel-drive's number plate was API 23G.
