The chilling vantage point a fly-in-fly-out sniper may have used to take out a bikie kingpin has emerged – as the Perth racetrack where he was gunned down welcomed back crowds for the first time since the shooting.
Former Rebels bikie boss Nick Martin, 51, was shot in the back at the Outlaw Nitro Challenge drag racing event at the Perth Motorplex, Kwinana Beach at 8.30pm on Saturday, December 12.
He died at the scene in front of horrified families and children including his own wife and step-daughter.
Martin told his wife Amanda: ‘babe, I’ve been shot’ as she tried to give him CPR while he died in her arms.
The spot on the racecourse where the sniper may have laid in wait for Martin is only metres away from the one police are investigating as the gunman’s possible position.
Crowds meanwhile returned to the popular Perth Motorplex on Saturday for the first time since the public shooting that shocked the nation.
