Brother of notorious crime boss Bassam Hamzy is gunned down in broad daylight outside an apartment block as underworld war explodes again
Ghassan Amoun, the brother of Brothers 4 Life gang boss Bassam Hamzy, has been shot dead in the street.
The high-ranking underworld lieutenant was gunned down as he sat in a BMW outside an apartment building in western Sydney.
Police and paramedics rushed to the shooting on Rawson Road in South Wentworthville about 12.45pm on Thursday, but he died at the scene.
Amoun, 35, is the third Hamzy relative to be assassinated in less than two years after Bassam’s brother Mejid Hamzy in 2020 and cousin Bilal Hamze in 2021.
Initial inquiries lead police to a burnt out car at a nearby intersection on Una and Smith Streets, believed to have been used as a getaway vehicle.
