Man dies from gunshot wounds following spate of gangland shootings in Sydney

A man has been killed in Sydney’s second deadly shooting this week.

Police arrived in Knox Street, Belmore, in the city’s south west early on Saturday to find a man with gunshot wounds to his torso.

Paramedics treated the man, believed to be in his 20s, but he died at the scene. He is yet to be formally identified.

The street remains closed to traffic while detectives investigate. It’s not yet known if the shooting is gang-related.

The incident is the third fatal shooting in recent weeks and comes only days after a Comanchero bikie boss and his brother were gunned down at a western Sydney gym.

Omar Zahed, 39, was killed and his brother, Comanchero bikie boss Tarek Zahed, 41, was critically wounded at the Body Fit gym in Auburn on Tuesday night.

Those shootings followed the death of gangland figure Mahmoud “Brownie” Ahmad, who was shot in Greenacre in late April.

NSW police established a new strike force to investigate the shootings.
