Bikie crackdown: Senior gang member charged with drive-by shooting

A senior member of the Rock Machine outlaw motorcycle gang has been charged over a drive-by shooting at a home in Port Kennedy.

Nobody was injured in the shooting, but a pregnant woman and child were inside the home on Sirius Place when it was peppered with bullets last Thursday.

The 45-year-old man was arrested after a short police chase through Perth’s southern suburbs.

A second man – aged 36 and from Morley – was charged earlier this week.

Police say the drive-by shooting is unrelated to the public killing of former Rebels boss Nick Martin.

The 45-year-old man has been refused bail and was charged with 16 offences.

He is is due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.

In an unrelated matter, a 38-year-old OMCG associate was arrested in Perth.

It’s alleged the Baldivis man attempted to interfere with a witness in an upcoming trial, for which he is facing sexual assault charges.

He was charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice and will face court today.
