The parents of a Gold Coast father-of-two shot in the stomach in a suspected road rage attack 12 years ago believe police are closing in on catching his killers.
Detectives have renewed their investigation into the shooting of tradie and father-of-two Omega Ruston, 32, on the side of the highway at Burleigh Heads on Australia Day 2009.

Mrs Ruston said she and her husband were determined to stay strong for their grandchildren and in memory of their son's strong spirit.

He had a message for those involved in his brother's death.
'Please know the man you are protecting is a coward. To the man that shot Omega, the opportunity to right your wrongs does not come around often. You need to make amends,' he said.
'My brother will not grow old but you will grow old forever as a coward. Turn yourself in before it's too late.'
