Man dies from gunshot wounds following spate of gangland shootings in Sydney
May 14, 2022
A man has been killed in Sydney’s second deadly shooting this week believed to be linked to a recent spate of gangland shootings in the city.
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.
Police refused to confirm the identity of the latest shooting, however both the Sydney Morning Herald and the ABC reported on Saturday he is the nephew of gangland figure Mahmoud “Brownie” Ahmad, who was killed in Greenacre in late April.
