Police investigating fourth public shooting in a month

THE police strike-force tasked with combating Sydney's brewing gangland war is investigating its fourth public shooting in a month.

Detectives from Operation Apollo believe a 32-year-old man, who was shot in the stomach at St Mary's on Sunday night, was a Comanchero associate caught up in the club's ongoing feud with the Hells Angels.

As he recovered from surgery on Monday, police once again asked for information which could help them catch those responsible for the out-of control violence ruling the streets of the western suburbs.

The targeted shooting follows the execution-style murder of Hells Angels associate Tyrone Slemnik and the drive-by shooting of linked victim Ali Jammas earlier this month.

A man shot in the neck outside his home at Bexley last week is believed to have links to the Comancheros.

Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
