The shooting of a bikie gang member and his club president father has been declared a major crime

22:30 |

The shooting of a bikie gang member and his club president father has been declared a major crime as the South Australian police minister says some outlaw gangs have no regard for the law or the community.

Giovanni Focarelli, 22, is dead and his father, Comanchero club president Vince Focarelli, is in Royal Adelaide Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds after the shooting on Sunday night.
Police Minister Jennifer Rankine said the state has tough laws to deal with the "scourge" of outlaw motorcycle gangs but some just shun the law."I am sure the police are as frustrated as what I am about what is occurring," she told ABC radio.
Police believe the men were shot at Dry Creek, in Adelaide’s north, then drove to Prospect where they flagged down a police patrol vehicle near the quiet suburban Prospect Village Shopping Centre about 9pm (CDT) on Sunday.
Giovanni Focarelli was dead by the time ambulance crews arrived, while his father, Comanchero club president Vince Focarelli, was believed to be in a stable condition and walking.
Part of Prospect Rd was cordoned off while police examined the Focarellis’ car.About half an hour after the shooting a group of people arrived and had to be restrained by police from entering the crime scene.News Ltd said one woman had to be tackled by three officers.
Police later told reporters Mr Focarelli was refusing to help officers investigating his son’s death.
It is not the first time Focarelli, who was hospitalised with a gunshot wound to the leg in December after another attempt on his life, has refused to co-operate with police.
Ms Rankine said hundreds of bikies and associates have been arrested and charged with various offences but a small group appear to have no regard for the South Australian community.
"The frustration is these people have absolutely no regard for the law or, it would appear, for their safety or the safety of the community.":Text may be subject to copyright.This blog does not claim copyright to any such text. Copyright remains with the original copyright holder
