Chilling footage has emerged of the moment two hooded gunmen stormed a Melbourne tattoo parlour and gunned down a Comanchero bikie in a brazen, broad daylight execution attempt.

The video, obtained by the Herald Sun, shows two hooded men climbing out of a car and rushing inside the Nitro Ink tattoo parlour, in Melbourne's south-east, while onlooking pedestrians scramble in terror.

Moments later, the two men rush back outside and into the waiting getaway vehicle - which was allegedly found burnt out in a nearby street after the shooting.

The Comanchero bikie gunned down inside the tattoo parlour was revealed as high-profile member Robert Ale - the right-hand man of the gang's jailed national president.

Ale, known as the 'Cry Baby Comanchero', was fighting for life in hospital after he was shot nine times during the attempted execution.

Police believe the shooting may be linked to the murder of former Comanchero boss Mick Hawi, who was killed outside a Sydney gym on February 15.

Ale, 35, was shot at the same time Hawi's family and friends gathered for his funeral at a Sydney mosque on Thursday. 

Ale is a close associate of Mick Murray - current Comanchero boss and former owner of Nitro Ink - who was secretly jailed about a month ago.

Police are probing whether rival gangs the Rebels or Bandidos are behind the assassination attempt.

But it is understood an internal dispute between Victoria and New South Wales Comanchero factions may be fuelling the violence, The Age reported. 

The internal squabble was sparked after a wild brawl at a Canberra strip club in August last year.

CCTV footage showed bikies, who later refused to cooperate with police, smashing glasses on their own heads and ripping off their shirts. 

Meanwhile, anti-gang police in Melbourne have said Ale's shooting is being treated as a targeted hit.
