On the photo: two brothers shot by the police are the sons of a notorious criminal who died during a siege

These are the two brothers who were shot by a police at a campsite after a high-speed chase.

Joel, 19, and Joshua Clavell, 30, have been identified as the men involved in the counter-terror cops confrontation at Richardsons Bend Camping Ground, west of Wodonga on the border between Victoria and New South Wales, at 3:30 pm on Wednesday.

The couple, who converted to Islam in prison, have been monitored by the counter-terrorism police for the past two years, said Assistant Commissioner Ross Guenther.

Their father, Rodney Clavell, a former prison officer, held four women hostage in a Adelaide brothel during a 13-hour confrontation with the police before killing himself in 2014.

He had visited amphetamines during the siege, an investigation into his death last year.

The driver of the vehicle rammed the police car and the violence exploded after the men jumped out of the vehicle with a knife and a tomahawk (pictured, police tent on site)

When the police approached one man, he approached them and was shot. The police tried to negotiate with the second man, but he refused. He was sprayed with capsicum spray and tasered, but when none of these methods had any effect, the police also shot him (photo, the Murray River Reserve where the shooting took place)

& # 39; I understand that a few years ago the older brother entered into a commitment to this form of Islam.

& # 39; He tried to pass that thought on to his brothers. I think that happened over a period of several years.

He said that the older brother would be at a very threatening level & # 39 ;.

He said the police were now trying to understand whether 19-year-old Joshua Clavell was a risk to the community.

Both men stay in the hospital after the impasse with the police, allegedly fueled when police officers have a & # 39; precautionary check & # 39; of the couple.

They rammed a police car before they got out of their vehicle, reportedly with a knife and a tomahawk.

The 30-year-old was shot after allegedly bumping into an officer with a gun in his hand, police said.

The 19-year-old was shot after allegedly refusing to surrender.

Joshua, who has a criminal record in three states and has been in prison for six months for cases unrelated to terrorist crimes, remains in a serious state in Melbourne.

Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Ross Guenther said the two men may have crossed the border to escape the watchful eye of the NSW police.

& # 39; Maybe they thought they were paying too much attention in NSW, so they thought coming over to Victoria was a good move. & # 39;

Joshua is recovering at a hospital in Albury and Joel has flown to Melbourne and is still in a critical condition.
