A crime scene has been established which will be examined by specialist forensic police who are on their way to the scene.

Numerous police resources, included specialist officers are conducting inquiries into the incident. 

Daily Mail Australia has been told Hamze family members held an urgent Zoom meeting with a criminal defence lawyer shortly after the apparent slaying. 

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers.

The shooting is understood to be the latest escalation in the long-running Sydney underworld feud between the Alameddine and Hamze families. 

Salim is the third member of the extended Hamze family to be shot dead in the last  year.

In June, the crime boss cousin of Brothers for Life gangster Bassam Hamzy was executed in a drive-by shooting after leaving Sydney’s ritzy Kid Kyoto restaurant.

Underworld figure Bilal Hamze, 34, had a bounty on his head when he was shot twice in the stomach and once in the shoulder in front of shocked onlookers.

Bilal was hiding out in the city amid underworld conflict with members of the rival Alameddine clan.

His public assassination came after his own mother Maha Hamze’s home in Auburn was the target of a drive-by shooting in February.

No one inside was injured but a nurse at a nearby hospital was hurt when a stray bullet destroyed a window she was standing near.

In October last year, Mejid Hamzy – the younger brother of Bassam, was gunned down in broad daylight outside his Condell Park home.

Two brothers allegedly linked to the Alameddine family have been arrested over the fatal shooting of Mejid, but police believe the gunmen are still at large.

In September, police released CCTV footage of two hooded men fleeing from the scene moments after Mejid was shot dead as they continue to hunt for the killers.

The CCTV captured the face and distinct blond hair of one the men briefly exposed after his hoodie fell off while fleeing the scene through the reserve before getting into two luxury cars.

A suspected murder attempt against another member of the Hamze clan was following a police traffic stop in Sydney’s north two months ago. 

Police believe gangland rivals had been planning to carry out an attack on Ibrahem Hamze when a stolen Mercedes was spotted on Walker Street on August 14.

The driver allegedly refused to stop the vehicle for officers before speeding off and running through a red light. 

But the car suffered a flat tyre forcing the driver and another passenger to abandon the vehicle on Miller Street at Cammeray. 

More to come
