Detective Acting Inspector Ash Ryan said this was a “targeted attack”.

“Over the past year, detectives have followed up a number of avenues of enquiry in relation to this shooting and we are hopeful that with the release of the CCTV and images, we will have more people come forward with information.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who has knowledge of those involved and what the motivation for the shooting might have been – whether that be a result of a rivalry between clubs, or an inhouse dispute within the Rebels OMCG.”
