Man charged with murder over Ace Hall shooting


Police confirmed Mr Hall had previously come into contact with police and Tweed Heads Local Area Commander Detective Inspector Wayne Starling described the victim of the shooting as "not a general member of the public we serve on a daily basis".

A man extradited to NSW over the fatal shooting of alleged standover man Ace Hall at Tweed Heads on Saturday has been charged with murder.

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.

About 4.30pm (24 June 2017), police attended Tweed Heads District Hospital after receiving information a man suffering a gunshot wound had presented at the hospital.

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

The shooting incident followed a brawl at Seagulls Leagues Club at Tweed Heads, just across the border from the Gold Coast, between rival bikie gangs.

New York's PIX 11 news reports the bus hit at least six cars and caused thousands of dollars in damage. The bus then rolled backward down the street, smashing into 10 parked cars before striking a church.

Although heavily tattooed with the word loyalty on the side of his face and the number 13 on his chin, police said Mr Hall was not a member of a bikie group.

Starling said there was "no evidence whatsoever to suggest that this fellow died as a result of the brawl at Seagulls last week".

Police raided a property in an industrial area of South Tweed following the man's death, and are searching the area for bullet casings and blood.

Phil Becker, 33, was nabbed by Queensland police in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a joint operation with NSW detectives led officers to his vehicle at a service station at Jimboomba, southwest of Brisbane.

Today, Becker appeared before the Southport Magistrates Court on the Gold Coast, where the magistrate granted his extradition back to NSW.
