Ongoing rivalry between two groups is blamed for a fatal Melbourne triple shooting, a magistrate has been told after one of the alleged gunmen was extradited from Sydney to face court.
Mikhael Myko, 25, is charged with seven offences including attempted murder over the March 1 shooting at a boxing tournament in Kensington.
Ben Togiai, 30, was killed in the shooting and two other men, aged 32 and 34, were injured.
Myko, from Pascoe Vale, was arrested in Sydney's Bankstown on Friday night alongside Brunswick man Abdullah El Nasher, 27.
It's understood El Nasher jumped from a balcony while trying to flee and he remains in hospital in NSW and is yet to be interviewed by police or charged.
El Nasher's older brother Ali El Nasher, 28, is still wanted by police.
Myko said nothing in his brief court appearance and did not seek bail.
Prosecutor Madeleine Sargent told magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg the incident was allegedly the result of ongoing rivalry between two groups.
She sought extra time for police to compile extensive CCTV footage of the incident, to identify witnesses out of more than 1000 patrons at the event and to finalise ballistic analysis, but it was refused.
Myko is expected to return to court for a committal mention on June 4.
