Homicide detectives have released CCTV as an investigation continues into the fatal shooting of Ghassan Amoun in Sydney’s west last year.
About 12.45pm on Thursday 6 January 2022, emergency services were called to Rawson Road at the intersection of the Great Western Highway in South Wentworthville, following reports of a man suffering gunshot wounds in a parked vehicle.
NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the man; however, he died at the scene. He has since been identified as 35-year-old Ghassan Amoun.
A short time later, a grey Mini Cooper was found alight on nearby Una Street.
Crime scenes were established at both locations, which were forensically examined by specialist police.
Officers attached to Cumberland Police Area Command commenced inquiries before the investigation was taken carriage of by State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad under Strike Force Combo.
Inquiries have since established the shooting was a targeted attack as part of an ongoing feud between Organised Criminal Networks.
As the investigation continues, strike force detectives have released CCTV of two vehicles and three men who may be able to assist police, as they appeal for public information.
The CCTV shows a grey 2017 Mini Cooper being parked on Una Street in Wentworthville, nearby a silver 2007 Toyota Aurion, on the morning of the shooting.
A man is then seen walking nearby a short time later – described as being of solid build, wearing black tracksuit pants, with a black and white hooded jumper and a black face mask.
After the alleged shooting, CCTV shows two unknown men driving the Mini Cooper back to Una Street, before setting it alight and fleeing the scene in the Toyota Aurion, bearing number plates ‘DB90FA’.
