Notorious Bikie Shane Bowden was killed in an execution-style shoot on the Gold Coast
Notorious Mongolian bikie Shane Bowden was killed by members of his own gang in an execution-style shoot on the Gold Coast.
The 48-year-old was gunned down in his car shortly after midnight Monday morning after driving into the driveway of his home on Cox Road in Pimpama.
His wife and two young children were home at the time of the brazen murder.
Two burned-out vehicles were found nearby – one in Beenleigh and one in Ormeau – and a manhunt has been launched for two men believed to be behind the shooting.
Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith said it appeared Bowden had been ambushed.
“At this point, we believe the victim came home from the gym and pulled into their driveway. The attackers ran in and shot him several times. As a result, he has now passed away, ”he said.
“He basically drove into his driveway, didn’t even get out of his car, and was executed.
The 48-year-old’s body was discovered in a car on Cox Road around 12:10 p.m. on Monday
Bowden was ambushed in a Melbourne driveway on July 1, just two weeks after leaving the Loddon Prison scintillating five years after a violent home invasion
Detective Superintendent Smith said it was likely that the targeted shooting was carried out by members of Bowden’s own Mongol Club.
“It obviously makes it harder when these types of gangs are involved because they have their own code of silence.
“It is important that people understand that these gangs are criminals … who survive from retaliation, violence and threats and if anyone thinks otherwise, they are an idiot.”
“Nobody deserves to die this way, but you live by the sword, you die by the sword,” he added.
It is believed that upon his release, Bowden attempted to regain his power within the gang and sought revenge after being attacked in a separate drive-by shooting in Melbourne.
The illegal motorcycle gang enforcer was released from jail earlier this year after serving five years behind bars for a violent home invasion.
Bowden, who was once part of Finks’ “Terror Team”, made headlines earlier this month for violating the coronavirus quarantine while traveling from Victoria to Queensland
Police are at the location of the shooting where the notorious ex-bikie Shane Bowden was killed
He left Loddon Prison in regional Victoria in a white stretch limousine and was accompanied by a retinue of Mongolian bikes, including the club’s new boss, Toby Mitchell.
Just two weeks after his release from prison, he was ambushed in a Melbourne driveway in a separate drive-by shoot.
He was diagnosed with coronavirus at Melbourne hospital until he was operated on for the gunshot wounds. However, on August 21, he was released by the Victorian authorities.
On August 22nd, he tested positive for a second test but was not contagious.
Bowden, who was once part of Finks’ “Terror Team”, made headlines again after providing false information about his border declaration while fleeing to Queensland.
It briefly sparked fears of a coronavirus outbreak after violating its quarantine while traveling from Victoria. He was fined $ 750 for the injury.

Bowden and his then-girlfriend, as well as Hollywood fitness model Janet ‘Aysen Unlu’ Campbell, were charged with aggravated assault and robbery after a home invasion in South Yarra in 2015.
During the attack, Bowden stormed into the house with night vision goggles armed with a hunting knife and demanded cash from the frightened inmates.
He kicked one of the victims in the face and stomped on a man’s head before escaping with around $ 700 in cash, The Age reported.
The couple were dressed in camouflage and were hiding behind a tree less than a kilometer from their home when they were arrested by police.
Campbell narrowly avoided jail.

She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
The model and celebrity trainer who once worked with Britney Spears and Beyonce lost a tooth in the ugly incident.
When she appeared in court, Campbell told the judge that she “got into the wrong people” after returning to Melbourne from the United States.
Still, while behind bars, Bowden managed to attract attention after a racy photo of a prison guard was found in his jail cell at Port Phillip Prison in 2017.
The jail time isn’t his first time behind bars either, as Bowden spent seven years in prison after an infamous Bikie brawl in Queensland in 2006.
When he was a member of the Finks Club, he shot Melbourne bikie Christopher Wayne Hudson during a scrap at the Royal Pines Resort during a kickboxing tournament.
