Former Hells Angels bikie Christopher Wayne Hudson shot and killed solicitor and father of three, Brendan Keilar, on the corner of William Street and Flinders Lane in 2007. He had come to the aid of Hudson`s girlfriend, Sydney model Kaera Douglas, who was being dragged by the hair while trying to get into a taxi.

The pair had argued after leaving a nearby nightclub. Dutch backpacker Paul De Waard, who also stopped to help, was also shot but survived. Ms Douglas was also shot. Hudson pleaded guilty to murder and two counts of attempted murder.
