Campsie, Sydney: Surveillance footage released of September shooting

Shocking surveillance footage has emerged of a suspected gangland shooting that left a young man with gunshot wounds to the head and chest.

On September 12 last year, a 27-year-old man was waiting inside his car at an underground carpark on Canterbury Rd at Campsie in Sydney’s southwest when he was approached by an unknown man wearing a balaclava.

The man allegedly fired two guns at him up to 12 times before fleeing the scene in a white Mercedes.

Terrifying images taken from CCTV released on Tuesday show a man dressed in head-to-toe black and pointing two firearms at the vehicle.

Paramedics treated the 27-year-old for two gunshot wounds to his head and chest, and he was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

He has since made a full recovery.

Police also released CCTV of a white Mercedes fleeing the scene.

Investigations under Strike Force Faux has established that five burnt-out cars found after the shooting were used as getaway cars.

The white Mercedes sedan was found ablaze and crashed into a Kingsgrove house, a 10-minute drive from the underground parking lot.

Shortly after locating the Mercedes, police found a black Mazda CX-5 on fire in Birrong and a blue BMW sedan on fire in Berala.

The next day, a fourth car, a burnt-out black Kia, was found in Agnes Banks.

The final burnt-out vehicle, a silver Nissan Pulsar, was located in West Pennant Hills eight days after the alleged shooting.

Inquiries revealed two males wearing balaclavas were seen fleeing this car.

Anyone with information about the incident or identity of the men shown in the CCTV are urged to contact police.
