Gangland execution in Melbourne leads to retaliation fears

Published

on

The daylight execution of Melbourne’s notorious gangland figure, Gavin Preston, at a cafe in Keilor Village has prompted concerns of retaliatory violence.

The incident has raised questions about the potential escalation of a gang war in Melbourne.

Gavin Preston, commonly known as “Capable,” was fatally shot in broad daylight while dining at Sweet Lulus cafe, with another man in his 20s critically injured in the attack. Security camera footage captured the horrifying moment when a hooded gunman, dressed in black, approached Preston and the other victim, firing multiple shots before quickly fleeing the scene in a black SUV.

No gang war

Despite the shocking nature of the crime, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews sought to reassure the public, downplaying fears of a burgeoning gang war. He expressed confidence in the resolve of Victoria Police to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice, emphasizing that the safety of the community remains a top priority.

When questioned about the possibility of an escalation in gang-related violence, Premier Andrews stated, “I have no advice to suggest that that’s likely.”

The incident remains under investigation, with police launching a major manhunt to locate the culprits. Detectives are urging witnesses or individuals with dashcam footage related to the shooting to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.

Gavin Preston, a prominent figure in Melbourne’s underworld, had been released from Barwon Prison earlier this year after serving an 11-year sentence for defensive homicide. His violent death at the cafe has reignited concerns about organized crime in the city.
