Police fear “there may be repercussions” after the brother of a notorious criminal was gunned down in southwest Sydney.
Police suspect that two men were waiting just after 7:30 a.m. for the victim to emerge from his home in Condell Park on Simmat Avenue. It was reported that a car drove off after being shot.
“Surely we would say at this early stage that it was a targeted shooting,” said Acting Superintendent of the Bankstown Police Department, Darren Sly.
Police also investigated whether a burned-out car nearby was linked to the shooting.
The attackers remained at large on Monday afternoon, despite police efforts to track them down with a helicopter and officers on the ground.
The victim’s brother is the leader of the violent Brothers For Life gang in southwest Sydney, which has been convicted and incarcerated in Goulburn Supermax in southern New South Wales.
Superintendent Sly told reporters after the incident, “In such circumstances, the police are always concerned if we shoot publicly that it may have an impact, but the police will certainly make every effort to try to stop it if we can. ”
Earlier in the day, officials said the victim had been treated by paramedics from four rescue teams for multiple gunshot wounds but his life could not be saved.
Footage of the scene showed a hovering police helicopter and large numbers of officers in the area.
Simmat Avenue and Curtin Place were closed in both directions, and people were advised to avoid the area as detectives and coroners were working on the scene.
