Gunman confesses on TV then hijacks camera van

Peter Steer was on his way to cover reports of a siege in Queensland - on his first day working for Channel 7 News - when a barefoot biker beckoned him to pull over.

In the first of a remarkable series of events all captured on video, the leather-clad suspect began weeping while telling Steer: "I've done an extremely bad thing...

"I hope she's alright. I think she's dead."

With blood on his hands and while Steer can be heard reporting the matter to police over the phone, the sobbing biker says: "I surrender myself to God."

But despite the cameraman calling police again to tell them "it's extremely important, I have the person you're looking for", the suspect has a change of heart and jumps into the news van.

Footage shows him pointing a gun at Steer, who tells the man: "Don't be an idiot."

He then crashes into a gas tank, causing a dangerous leak, before armed police arrive and arrest the man - who was reportedly asking for a lighter as he sprinted towards the leaking container.

The man was later charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of a weapon and unlawful damage.
