Ahmad Al-Azzam Wiki – Ahmad Al-Azzam Biography
Ahmad Al-Azzam, 25, was shot while sitting in his silver Toyota on Mayvic Street in Greenacre, south-west Sydney, at 2:15am on Sunday. He had been fighting for his life at the hospital, but succumbed to his injuries Thursday morning. Kaashif Richards, 22, and Achiraya Jantharat, 19, who were traveling in another car 50 meters away, were also injured and rushed to hospital. Ms Jantharat has since been released while Mr Richards remains in care. Due to the large number of bullets focused on Mr. Al-Azzam’s car, investigators suspect that he was the hitman’s target. But the motive remains a mystery as none of the three victims had criminal records or known ties to organized crime gangs.
Ahmad Al-Azzam was 25 years old.
A tribute to Mr. Al-Azzam was shared on social media on Thursday. “It is with great sadness that we announce that my brother Ahmad Al Azzam returned to his Lord this morning,” the post read. Just five minutes after the brazen shooting at the industrial estate, a BMW believed to be the getaway car was torched two suburbs from Regents Park. It is understood that Al-Azzam and the other two victims of the shooting did not know each other. Detectives are appealing to anyone with information regarding the shooting to come forward. New South Wales Police launched a task force on Thursday to coordinate investigations into the recent shootings in public places and associated organized criminal activity.
