Bikie boss Nick Martin was laid to rest. A single sniper gunshot killed him.
WA police have launched a taskforce and raided the clubhouses of rival bikie gangs after senior Rebels bikie Nick Martin was shot dead at a Perth drag racing event. The brazen public slaying has sparked fears of a gang war.

WA cops have launched operation Rovello, a taskforce comprising more than 100 cops including gang squad and homicide detectives. “We’re taking the fight back to the gangs in Western Australia,” WA Police Assistant Commissioner Brad Royce told reporters.
Rebels boss Nick Martin, 50, has been gunned down at a family drag racing event in Perth. He was shot in front of horrified families before dying at the scene. A five-year-old boy, who was sitting on his parent's lap nearby, was injured. Martin was involved in a brawl with a Hells Angels bikie in Scarborough, on November 24.

There are now fears of an all out bikie war. Martin was a well known identity in the Perth underworld and had survived a series of attacks.
