Two Irish men have been charged with attempted murder in connection with shooting a former police detective in Australia.
The pair were arrested near Byron Bay on Wednesday.
ABC News says 30-year-old Mark Dixon and 26-year-old Jack Harvey have appeared at Byron Bay Local Court, charged with attempted murder after an ex-detective was shot in the face last Thursday.
53-year-old Sid Morgan was found on a road at Point Cook in Melbourne last Thursday night.
He remains in a critical condition in hospital.
The Irish men were arrested near Byron Bay on Wednesday after a two-day manhunt.
They did not apply for bail, and it was formally refused.
They are to be extradited and are due to face the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Saturday.
