Criminal Groups Squad detectives are renewing their appeal for public assistance and have released further CCTV footage as inquiries continue into the shooting murder of a man at Condell Park last year.

About 7.30am on Monday 19 October 2020, emergency services were called to Simmat Avenue, Condell Park, following reports of a shooting.

A man was located nearby with multiple gunshot wounds. Despite the efforts of emergency services, he died at the scene.

The man was later formally identified as 44-year-old, Mejid Hamzy.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Criminal Groups Squad established Strike Force Courier to investigate the shooting murder.

Following further investigations, police have released additional CCTV of the Toyota and Mercedes, as well as vision of a third vehicle of interest – a white BMW 328i.

Police have identified that all three vehicles travelled from Moorebank to Condell Park and are seeking to identify the occupants of the vehicles, who may be able to assist with further inquiries.

The vehicles are captured on CCTV travelling in convoy at Marion and Edgar Streets, Condell Park, prior to and after the shooting.

The Toyota was found burnt out at Yagoona a short time later.

The Mercedes and the BMW return to Moorebank before travelling to Luddenham.

In addition, police have released CCTV of two further vehicles – a silver Toyota Corolla and white Toyota Hiace van.

Officers are also seeking to identify the occupants of these vehicles, who may have witnessed the events prior to, and after the shooting.
