‘Tit-for-tat war’: Nephew of slain underworld figure killed in Sydney’s second fatal shooting in a week

The nephew of slain underworld figure Mahmoud “Brownie” Ahmad has been shot dead outside his south-west Sydney home as police try to stop the “tit-for-tat” gangland war from putting the community at risk.

Paramedics and police worked to resuscitate the man, who was found lying outside his Knox Street home in Belmore just before 4am with multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and stomach.

Despite his efforts, the 23-year-old died at the scene.

Police said his wife, who is heavily pregnant, was taken to hospital after the incident to be treated for shock.

One woman can be heard repeatedly yelling: “They f****** shot him.”

Police say the man had arrived home just before the incident.

Number of suspects in murder of Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad

Late last month, the man’s uncle “Brownie” Ahmad was fatally gunned down in Greenacre outside a home on Narelle Crescent.

Detective Chief Superintendent Darren Bennett said police were trying to stop more bloodshed.

“We’ve clearly got a war of sorts in south western Sydney around drug supply and organized crime. That crosses over into family relationships and the like…. we know how violent these people are,” Superintendent Bennett said.

“When I got the call one of the first things that ran through my mind was we’re in a spat of tit-for-tat shootings around organized criminals in south west Sydney.”

He said police were “working tirelessly” to stop the violence.

“It’s a resource issue for the NSW Police force and a massive challenge for the community but we’re very determined in bringing this to an end as quickly as we can,” he said.

Shortly after today’s shooting, two vehicles were located on fire at Croydon Park and Bexley North.

Strike Force Bati has been created to investigate the shooting, led by the Homicide Squad with assistance from the designated gang-fighting squad, Raptor.

Multiple crime scenes are being examined by specialist forensic officers as detectives to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event.

Police say it is too early to confirm the motive of the shooting but have confirmed they are investigating whether it is linked to dozens of gang murders across Western Sydney.

Senior Comanchero bikie Tarek Zahed is still in hospital after he was shot and his brother was killed at Auburn’s Bodyfit gym on Tuesday night.

His funeral was held yesterday.
