Detectives investigating a fatal shooting in Sydney’s Inner West earlier this year have arrested a second man over the alleged murder.
Emergency services were called to a unit on East Street, Five Dock, about 3.45am on Tuesday 2 April 2019, after reports of shots fired.
Officers found two men, both aged 24, suffering gunshot wounds.
NSW Ambulance paramedics treated both men at the scene before taking them to hospital, where one man – who suffered a gunshot wound to his head – later died.
The man who suffered a gunshot wound to his shoulder has since been released.
About 15 minutes later, a third man, aged 28, presented to Auburn Hospital suffering a gunshot wound to his stomach.
Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad and Burwood Police Area Command commenced an investigation under Strike Force Wesson.
As part of their inquiries, the 28-year-old man was charged with murder on Thursday 4 April 2019. He remains before the courts.
Following further inquiries, Strike Force Wesson detectives, with assistance from tactical operatives, arrested a 27-year-old man at a home in Guildford about 6am today (Wednesday 21 August 2019).
He has been taken to Granville Police Station, where he is expected to be charged.
Investigations under Strike Force Wesson continue.
