Tweed shooting victim known as 'the enforcer'

Police said they detained a number of men following the brawl but they were released pending further inquiries

Detectives from Tweed Heads Local Area Command, with the assistance of the State Crime Command's Homicide Squad, established Strike Force Varndell to investigate Mr Hall's death.

Police are raiding a property in an industrial area in connection with the fatal shooting of a man at Tweed Heads.

The heavily-tattooed Hall, 31, was gunned down at close range outside a South Tweed warehouse on Saturday.

Mr Hall was found outside The Tweed Hospital around 4.30pm on Saturday, June 24 with a gunshot wound to the stomach and died shortly after.

Detective Inspector Starling also said the attack was not related to a brawl between rival bikie gangs at the Seagull Leagues Club during Wednesday night's State of Origin clash.

Despite Becker's arrest police say the investigation into Mr Hall's death is ongoing and anyone with information should contact them.




"We've been working very, very closely with the Queensland police and, as a result of that, we've been able to bring closure, hopefully, to the family of the deceased, Ace Hall", he said.

OVERNIGHT: Gold Coast detectives have joined the hunt for the killer of Tweed Heads bikie associate and standover man Ace Hall, amid fears of more bloodshed as payback.

Yesterday afternoon, a hire auto, believed to have been used by the shooter, was found dumped.

Police will hold a press conference later on Sunday.

Phil Becker, 33, was nabbed by Queensland police in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a joint operation with NSW detectives led officers to his auto at a service station at Jimboomba, southwest of Brisbane.

NSW Police investigators will seek to extradite the man from Queensland when he appears at the Southport Local Court Later today.
