Ace John Anthony Hall, 31, was on Saturday shot once in the stomach and taken to Tweed Hospital about 4.30pm in a car by his girlfriend and another man. He died during surgery.

The third occupant of the car fled the scene.

Mr Hall is believed to have been shot at close range on the street outside a warehouse at South Tweed.
