Two men were arrested yesterday afternoon at Broken Head after fleeing Point Cook in Victoria following the shooting of a 53-year-old man at a Spraypoint Drive home about 11pm on 21 February. The man was left with life-threatening injuries; he remains in hospital.
A search for Mark Dixon, 30 and Jack Harvey, 26 that had taken place in Suffolk Park on Tuesday night (February 26) had failed to find them.
Describing the arrest of Jack Harvey yesterday afternoon a local eyewitness said, ‘I arrived at the Broken Head carpark just as a man was being led by three armed AFP (Australian Federal Police) agents in full black SWAT like outfits with a rifle or AK aimed at him as they put him the back of the police four-by-four.’
According to the Victorian police the pair are assisting the police with their enquiries.
Victim former member of NSW police
It has emerged that the victim is former NSW police officer Sid Morgan who was shot in the face during the incident at Point Cook. Mr Morgan was acquitted of the murder of his brother-in-law Mansour Suha in 1997, who had been charged with molesting three young girls according to the ABC.
Mr Morgan then went on to become a real estate agent in Sydney.
