REWARD INCREASED TO $500,000 FOR INFORMATION INTO UNSOLVED MURDER AT GOSFORD BIKIE CLUBHOUSE

Police are offering a $500,000 reward for information into the murder of Paul Summers in 1999.

A reward of $500,000 is being offered for new information into the unsolved murder of a man more than two decades ago on the NSW Central Coast.

Paul Summers was killed while sleeping on the couch inside a Rebels clubhouse over 20 years ago.

Mr Summers was shot while asleep on the couch of the Rebels clubhouse in West Gosford.

In the early hours of September 22, 1999, shots were fired into the front of the bikie gang’s Gosford Chapter clubhouse in West Gosford.

Three of the bullets struck and killed the 31-year-old while he was asleep on a lounge.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad established Strike Force Phillack to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mr Summers’ death.

A coronial inquest in 2001 confirmed Mr Summers had been fatally shot by an unknown person.

In 2003, the NSW Government announced a $100,000 reward for information relating to his death.

Several lines of inquiry have since been investigated, however no arrests have ever been made.

Police are hopeful the increase in the reward will encourage people to come forward with new information that may assist detectives with their ongoing investigation.
