PostSubject: Alleged Melbourne gunman 'feeling invincible'   June 21st 2010, 10:56 am

A young Melbourne gunman who is on the run from police bragged about feeling "invincible" before allegedly embarking on a crime spree this morning.

David Paul Rowntree, who remains at large despite a massive manhunt in the inner city, wrote about his feelings of power and anger on his Facebook page.

"David Rowntree feels 9 times more invincible lol," Rowntree, 19, wrote on Friday morning.


Last Wednesday, he again said he felt "invincible......tired....mostly invincible!!!".


In another disturbing comment, posted last Tuesday, Rowntree said he "feels like I have lots of flies caught in my lil spiderweb and I will torture those flies".

The suspect, from Colac in Victoria's southwest, also appears to have been suffering problems in his personal life.

The woman listed as his girlfriend wrote on Saturday that the "person u love will hurt u in sum way".

Rowntree, who has almost 70 offences against his name and was previously described by a judge as a "devious and out of control serial offender", has managed to elude police after he was spotted carrying a gun near the Melbourne Cricket Ground at 9.40am.

It is believed the early-morning spree began when a vehicle was stolen from an address in Balwyn before it was used in the armed robbery of a service station in Bulleen about 3am.

The man, wearing a balaclava, stole cash before allegedly driving to another address in Balwyn where he abandoned the stolen car and entered a house as the residents slept.

He then stole cash from a neighbouring property before taking a blue Commodore from the driveway, police allege.

A police pursuit began about 9.30am along the Monash Freeway where three cars and an unmarked police vehicle were struck.

One person suffered minor injuries.

The car was found abandoned in a car park behind Rod Laver Arena, with a shotgun and balaclava found dumped at a nearby tram stop.

A massive search by heavily-armed police officers and dog squads failed to find the suspect as nearby streets and buildings, including the MCG, were sent into lockdown.

Police are calling for members of the public to avoid approaching Rowntree and instead advising them to call Triple-0.
