Police release fresh CCTV footage in 2020 Condell Park shooting murder of Mejid Hamzy
Police will search a southwestern Sydney park and have released fresh CCTV footage as investigations continue into the shooting murder of Mejid Hamzy.
The 44-year-old was gunned down on Simmat Avenue outside his Condell Park home at 7.30am on October 19, 2020.
Emergency services rushed to Hamzy’s home to find him with multiple gunshot wounds and despite the efforts of paramedics, he died at the scene.
A grey Toyota RAV4, which was believed to be used in the murder, was found burned out at nearby Colechin Street.
Strike Force Courier was established to investigate the shooting with the assistance of the NSW Crime Commission.
Officers will conduct a co-ordinated search Deepwater Park at Panania from 8am Tuesday, including a creek adjacent to Kelso Park South and Marco Reserve.
Detectives are continuing to explore several lines of inquiry in relation to the alleged murder.
Fresh CCTV footage has also been released showing multiple events prior to and after the shooting, including a man walking near a carpark at Kelso Park South just after 4am and two men crossing Henry Lawson Drive towards Deepwater Park about 30 minutes later.
Footage also shows three vehicles, a black Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA45, grey Toyota RAV4, and white BMW 328i, travelling together on Edgar Street at Condell Park.
Another video shows two men in dark clothing exiting the RAV4 on Simmat Avenue about 7.25am before Mr Hamzy attempts to flee the street after the shooting, but is followed.
Two men in dark clothing can be seen running south on Colechin Reserve at Condell Park about 7.35am with the hood of one of the men falling momentarily.
A short time later two men in dark clothing are seen walking together about 8.10am at Kelso Park bike track, while two men are seen walking through the carpark.
In the footage one of the men can be seen wearing a distinctive black and grey hooded jumper with dark pants while the other man was wearing a dark coloured hoodie with three stripes on the back, black track pants with white writing along the legs and white shoes.
Officers are urging members of the public to come forward as they believe the two men seen in the footage can assist with inquiries.
Police are also appealing for anyone with information relating to the black Mercedes-Benz to come forward.
Criminal Groups Squad Commander, Detective Acting Superintendent Chris Goddard, said detectives believe the two men appear familiar with the local area.
“Their movements lead us to believe that both men know the area very well and may reside nearby, so we ask anyone from around East Hills and Panania to take a look at this footage, because you might recognise them,” Superintendent Goddard said.
“One of the men has been dubbed ‘Mr Blond’, because you can see he has blond hair when his hood slips off his head while he’s running.
“We believe both these men can assist our inquiries and would like to speak with them.”
Investigations under Strike Force Courier are continuing.
