A convicted murderer found out his brother had been killed in crime family feud while watching the news from behind bars in prison.
Mejid Hamzy was gunned down outside his Condell Park home on Monday as part of an ongoing feud between rival crime families, according to NSW Police.
Bassam Hamzy – who has been in prison for more than two decades – has described the murder as “the will of God”, his lawyer said.
Mejid Hamzy staggered to a friend’s house nearby to get help after being shot in Curtin Place at 7.30am on Monday, but died at the scene.
Police believe the gunman had been laying in wait before the ambush.
Bassam Hamzy, the Brothers 4 Life crime gang founder, is s currently jailed in Goulburn’s supermax prison.
He has been in prison after he was jailed for the murder of a teenager, Kris Toumazis, outside a Sydney nightclub in 1998.
Police are “very concerned” there could be reprisal attacks after the murder of Mejid Hamzy.
