Underworld figures fear an all-out bikie war is about to erupt after the Finks boss's home was targeted in a drive-by shooting while his wife and 11-day-old baby slept inside.
Brent James (BJ) Reker's home in Frankston, in Melbourne's south-east, was sprayed with bullets and a car firebombed about 4.40am Thursday.
At least one shooter is on the run following the suspected bikie-related attack.

Underworld sources have now warned the shooting could provoke violent retribution from the Finks gang or associates.
They revealed the Thursday morning shooting was not the first time the Finks boss was targeted in recent weeks.
Reker was reportedly approached by about 20 bikies from a rival gang at the Frankston hotel in May, causing a brawl to spill out on to the street, the Herald Sun reported.
Police fearing tensions were escalating then went to the hospital where Reker's son was born and took him back to the station for questioning.
Police now investigating the drive-by shooting are looking at several avenues but rival bikie gang the Hells Angels are at the top of their list.
