Melbourne’s northern suburbs became a war zone on Saturday when gunmen made an attempt on the life of a former outlaw bikie, crashed their getaway and then hijacked an SUV after terrorising its female driver and her child.
Former Mongols bikie Suleiman “Sam” Abdulrahim was driving a Mercedes 4WD when he was caught in a hail of bullets, The Age reported.
Shot and critically wounded, Abdulrahim was driven to Fawkner Police Station before being taken to the hospital in a critical condition.
Meanwhile, the gunmen fled in a Mazda SUV before losing control and crashing into a fire hydrant and pole on Box Forest Road, near Sydney Road, police said.
They then carjacked a Ford Territory, forcing a woman and child from the vehicle before escaping.
Abdulrahim remains in critical condition at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Investigators believe the shooting was a targeted attack.
Witnesses or anyone with CCTV/dash cam footage or with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
