Fight may have led to Tweed shooting death: relative

Posted June 28, 2017

Queensland Police arrested a 33-year-old man at 4.30am on Tuesday on the Gold Coast and took him to Southport Watch House.

A CLOSE relative of a man shot dead at Tweed Heads on Saturday says the victim and his alleged killer met for the first time only weeks ago.

NSW Police worked closely with officers from Queensland who located a Toyota Corolla at a service station on the Mt Lindsay Highway at Jimboomba on Monday night.

The 31-year-old was immediately treated by doctors, but died soon after.

Starling said the shooting victim, who was "known to police", was dropped at Tweed Heads hospital on Saturday by a woman who was now among witnesses being interviewed.

Despite the shooting coming days after a brawl between Lone Wolf and Bandidos bikies clubs outside Seagulls Leagues Club at Tweed Heads on Wednesday, police denied Mr Hall's death was a revenge killing.

Becker appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court yesterday, where he was ordered to be surrendered into the custody of NSW detectives.

A property in an industrial area on Machinery Drive at Tweed Heads was shut down on Sunday as homicide detectives searched for clues in connection to the shooting.

Hall, who lived on the Gold Coast, was a known debt enforcer and Mongols bikie gang associate.

They believe they know who pulled the trigger and are on high alert as they continue to hunt the culprit who they believe may be armed.

Becker will be driven to Tweed Heads police station.

Yesterday afternoon, a hire auto, believed to have been used by the shooter, was found dumped.

A man charged over the shooting death of an alleged standover man in northern NSW is due to face court, after being extradited from across the border.
