TWO men are in a critical condition in hospital after a shooting outside an Adelaide nightclub early today.

Four men were wounded in the shooting attack outside the Tonic nightclub in Light Square in Adelaide's CBD just after 4.30am.

Police are investigating whether members of a motorcycle gang may have been involved.
The four men with gunshot wounds were taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital. A hospital spokeswoman said two of them were in a critical condition.
South Australian police spokesman Senior Constable Tim Dodds said earlier that three of the men were "okay" but one was believed to be in a serious condition.
The ages of the men were unknown.
"It certainly happened out the front of the nightclub for whatever reason. They're investigating that now," Sen Const Dodds said.
Police will hold a media conference this afternoon

POLICE are investigating whether rival bikie gangs were involved in an Adelaide nightclub shooting that left four members of the Rebels gang in hospital.

The shooting occurred outside Tonic Nightclub in Light Square about 4.30am (CST) yesterday morning, with up to 10 shots fired by two offenders.

Assistant commissioner Tony Harrison said two of the victims had since been released from the Royal Adelaide Hospital and a third would be operated on tomorrow.

According to the Sunday Mail, one of those injured in the shooting was Robert Vitale, president of the south chapter of the Rebels.
Assistant commissioner Harrison said he could not comment on whether the shooters were linked to the rival Finks bikie gang.
"Since yesterday we believe we've firmed up some lines of inquiry in relation to who may be involved," he said.

"We are pursuing all lines of inquiry and they do include looking at members of other motorcycle gangs as to whether they had any involvement in the shooting."
Police had recovered closed circuit TV footage of the incident but assistant commissioner Harrison said there was "some difficulty in clearly identifying images" from it.

This needs to stop we live in Australia not America. We should be able to walk the streets with out fear of a gun fight breaking out at four am in light square.

It's not just in Light Sq...crime rate in Adelaide is getting higher. To think that Light Sq. is just one street away from UniSA..

Sigh...if you think this is bad... Look at Britain and their flying+speaking webcams. Do you even think that will stop or even reduce crime?
"The more you stop me, the more I'll do it"
=/ isn't this the way teenagers usually react nowadays?
I think criminals are challenged to grow smarter more like it.
