Chisholm Double Murder

Word is coming in that there’s been a major incident in Chisholm, possibly a shooting.

(One source reckon’s it’s a square up for the death of James Peisley over the weekend. CORRECTION: Now hearing that the link is limited to Peisley buying speed from one of the deceased)

More on this as and when it comes to hand.

UPDATE: ABC radio news on 666 is reporting two men have been shot dead on Couchman Crescent in Chisholm.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The Herald Sun is claiming it’s a bikie related killing. A person is assisting with inquiries and a firearm has been recovered.

FURTHER UPDATE: The Canberra Times informs that is believed the man being questioned is a brother of one of the victims.

The AFP website remains irresolutely useless. But Crimestoppers has two items on this:

    1. Police incident, Chisholm:

    ACT Policing is at the scene of an incident in Couchman Crescent where a man has been shot.

    About 3.10pm today (March 24) police and ACT Ambulance Service received a call for assistance amid reports that a man had suffered a gunshot wound. The area around Couchman Crescent was cordoned off as police responded to the incident.

    ACT Ambulance declared the man deceased at the scene. Territory Investigations Group officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.

    The area remains blocked off to members of the public as police continue their inquiries in relation to the matter. A number of people are currently assisting police with their investigations.

    2. Second deceased person located, Chisholm:

    Police responding to a shooting incident in Couchman Crescent, Chisholm this afternoon have located a second deceased person in a rear yard of a house.

    About 3.10pm today (March 24) police and ACT Ambulance Service received a call for assistance amid reports that a man had suffered a gunshot wound. The area around Couchman Crescent was cordoned off as police responded to the incident. ACT Ambulance declared the man deceased at the scene.

    A search of the immediate area resulted in a second deceased person being located. A weapon has been recovered and will undergo forensic investigation.

    A man has been apprehended by police and is currently being interviewed at Tuggeranong Police Station.

    Territory Investigations Group officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths. The area remains blocked off to members of the public as police continue their inquiries in relation to the matter.

MORE UPDATES: The Brisbane Times is claiming one of the victims was affiliated with the Rebels OMCG. The Australian is asserting a drug link.

FURTHER UPDATE: Bikernews.net is choosing to link to a News Limited story claiming it was related to a love triangle, and not motorcycle gangs.

    But a Rebels Motorcycle Club life member said club ties had nothing to do with the shooting, which occurred at the hands of a jilted ex-lover.

    The man, who did not wish to be named, said one of the victims was a close friend and a fellow Rebels member for around 30 years.

    “He’s been in a lot of trouble over his life, had a pretty tough time in his life at times,” the man said.

    “I sort of expected (him) to be somebody on the other side of things, more likely to be shooting at somebody than getting shot at.

    “It was over a girl from what I believe. It’s a love triangle. He’s gone out with this girl, the ex-boyfriend has come back.”

    The man said he did not know the identity of the other man involved in the shooting or if he was a member of the Rebels or any other motorcycle club.

    “All I know was that it wasn’t club related, it was just ex-boyfriend-shoots-new-boyfriend-love-triangle,” he said.

AFP MEDIA UNIT BREAKS SILENCE:

    The investigation into the fatal shooting of two men, believed to be aged 48 and 57, in Chisholm yesterday afternoon is continuing.

    At this stage, investigations by ACT Policing indicate the shooting was not gang related.

    A 20-year-old man has been conveyed to the Regional Watch House where he is expected to be charged with two counts of murder later this morning.

    2. Man charged, Chisholm shootings

    A 20-year-old man from Chisholm will appear before an ACT Magistrate later this morning charged with two counts of murder.

    This follows the fatal shooting of two men in the vicinity of a residence in Couchman Crescent, Chisholm yesterday afternoon.

    At this stage, investigations by ACT Policing indicate the shootings were not gang related.

SUSPECT NAMED: News report that the suspect has been named as Russell Field, 20, of Chisholm. Bail was formally refused. Mr. Field is to re-appear on 15 April. His lawyer says he will be defending the charges.

I’m speculating on public information. That’s how people debate. I don’t know why you’re here.

vg vg 10:09 pm 26 Mar 09

Surely I couldn’t know more about the incident than you DMD……….surely?

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 9:20 pm 26 Mar 09

Yes, it has absolutely nothing to do with the Rebels.

I mean, the rebels said that, so it must be true.

How is the bikie angle going.

Guess what, it isn’t.

Mark + 10,000 to me for the jumping to conclusions post

Copy.

Maybe

Ok thanks

Jesus I just realised how I set myself up for a flaming up there. It’s nothing criminal, she’s a nice old lady who had something very nasty happen to her. So don’t even think about it people

johnboy johnboy 9:39 pm 25 Mar 09

Post a new story?

Spam Box Spam Box 9:37 pm 25 Mar 09

JB. I would like to ask if anybody has had any experience with a particular Lawyer in Canberra (it’s for my mum so relax)…

What’s the appropriate way to do this

johnboy johnboy 9:21 pm 25 Mar 09

Sorry to shut you down Hams, but this isn’t the space to be discussing DMD’s personality.

I don’t know where that space is either.

Hams Hams 9:19 pm 25 Mar 09

I have been lurking here for a while. I am sorry if I have missed this earlier, but what is DMD’s problem with the AFP? Is it all Police or just the AFP he hates?

Starscream @ work said :

There has not been any mention of a woman, just three men and a lovers triangle.

I’m not saying this to make a gay joke, or be funny, or whatever…

But seriously, just because it seems unlikely that it was a gay love triangle, that doesn’t mean that it definitely wasn’t. So far, they have yet to prove anything as to whether it was or not.

Hence 1%ers and all that drivel. Hunter S Thompson wrote a famous book about it a billion years ago (it’s a bit of a wank though)

I think anybody over 10 is too old for dress ups but that’s just me

123qwe – I believe they coined the term themselves

Why is the word ‘outlaw’ tacked onto the term OMCG? The only place a MCG is outlawed is Sth Aust, yes/no?

Are the drugs costing too much for you DMD. If they were legal you could be off your head as often as you like.

As for double murders apparently had nothing to do with them being bikies etc and was all about the love. Police can’t proactively target murder, people will do it anyway.

Both actually MWF, now back on topic people.

I was an Admin for a Bulletin Board years ago. To get around this very thing we created a special side-forum called ‘The Cage'(based on a bar in Darwin). All threads that descended into flames were thrown in there. It was “no holds barred” type thing for 7days. After seven days the flame thread would be closed/deleted(hosed out)

It worked because the Admin didn’t need to do anything except hose it out every now and then and anybody who went in knew exactly what to expect.

Was quite fun actually 😀

I was a mod of a board with a similar sub forum. Ours was called “The Gutter”. Worked well until the board “owner” went all weird arse and started deleting posts just because he could. He even deleted his own posts from the “super secret admin and mods only” bit of the board because he didn’t want the punters to know what he really thought of them. I think it’s called covering one’s arse 😉

It might work on TRA though, because, AFAIK, JB is an employee and not the owner of the place.

Could we call it, the “Charny”?

Also, JB, a flame thread might not be a bad idea. Maybe there could be somewhere people could take personal arguments where no-one else has to shift through them.
