After his arrest Mr Bekiri was taken to Mascot Police Station and charged with an outstanding South Australian warrant for the offence of causing aggravated serious harm to another.
He was refused bail at Central Local Court on Wednesday afternoon. He will be detained “in relation to relevant COVID-19 directions,” before he is released into the care of South Australian authorities on April 8.
The alleged shooting took place on September 16 last year, when local police were called to Hindmarsh, South Australia, shortly before 11am.
Police allege two men in a white Toyota Yaris stopped in front of the victim, who was driving a silver Commodore sedan. An altercation ensued before the victim was allegedly shot in the leg.
One suspect left in the Toyota while the other left in the victim’s Commodore. The Commodore was located later that day in a neighbouring suburb.
The victim was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. An arrest warrant was subsequently issued for Mr Bekiri.
Police said it was “not believed to be a random incident.”
