Gangs Squad detectives have today arrested four members of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang following investigations into a brawl and a shooting in the Parramatta CBD at the weekend.
Police were called to the Albion hotel at Harris Street, Parramatta, about 11.15pm on Friday, July 13, after reports of a confrontation between security guards and a group of men, some of whom were wearing Hells Angels colours.
Police will be alleged the men became aggressive when they were refused entry to the hotel and the melee spilled on to George Street.
The security officers were allegedly pushed, punched, spat on and threatened before the men left the scene.
About two hours later, two of the men were seen on Harris Street with a sword and a handgun.
A number of shots were fired towards security officers before the men ran into a nearby reserve. No-one was injured.
Gangs Squad detectives have been investigating the incident under Strike Force Kinnarra.
At 6.30am today, detectives simultaneously raided five homes at West Ryde, Rhodes, Telopea, Merrylands and Lidcombe.
They were assisted by officers from the South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad.
Four men – one aged 23 and three aged 26 – were arrested and are currently being questioned.
Inquiries are continuing.
Strike Force Kinnarra was established by State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad in April this year to investigate numerous shootings linked to the Hells Angels and Nomads bikie gangs.
