A man charged with the double shooting of a couple after what appeared to be a minor road rage incident did not apply for bail when he faced Parramatta Bail Court today.
Ada Aydin, 22, was extradited from Queensland on Friday, escorted by Strike Force Macdonnell detectives who had been investigating the shooting for nine weeks.
A 39-year-old man and his 27-year-old girlfriend sought treatment at Auburn Hospital for gunshot wounds on August 15 at 5pm.
Police were told the couple's Toyota Hilux was in a minor crash with a black sedan at the intersection of Kihilla and Rawson Streets at Auburn, when they allegedly became involved in a fight with the male driver of the other car.
Police said the driver allegedly pulled out a gun and fired a number of rounds into the ute, injuring the couple, before he drove off.
Two weeks after the shooting the male victim dropped his 16-year-old son off at Auburn Hospital with a gunshot wound to the stomach but police said there was no link between the two incidents. They did say the father and son were known to them.
Detectives from Flemington Local Area Command established Strike Force Macdonnell to investigate the circumstances surrounding the initial shooting incident.
As a result of inquiries, Mr Aydin, who was wanted on New South Wales arrest warrants, was taken into custody by Queensland Police in the Brisbane CBD on Wednesday.
A Brisbane court on Thursday ordered the man be extradited back to New South Wales to face two charges of shooting with the intent to murder, firing a firearm in or near a public place and possessing an unauthorised pistol.
Magistrate Alan Moore refused Mr Aydin bail, which his defence lawyer Angelos Bilias did not formally apply for. Mr Bilias said he will apply for bail when he reappears at Burwood Local Court on Wednesday.
