Couple shot in Lamborghini in Sydney's Castle Cove

    * Couple gunned down in exclusive suburb
    * Both shot as they sat in Lamborghini
    * Police fear reprisal attacks

A MAN and a woman were gunned down outside a home in the exclusive Sydney north shore suburb of Castle Cove last night.

The couple were sitting in a Lamborghini outside the man's house on Neerim Road when they were both shot by an unknown gunman shortly after 11.30pm.

The man was shot five times and sustained injuries to the upper part of his body, stomach and arm.

Superintendent Peter Yeomans said the gunman was waiting for his victims.

"I think it would be quite obvious from his injuries, on the upper part of his body, that the person tried to kill the male in the vehicle,'' Supt Yeomans said.

He would not confirm if the shooting was bikie related, but he did say police had previously attended the Castle Cove home although he would not reveal how many times or why.

Both victims are under police guard in Royal North Shore hospital, he said.

The man needed surgery and is in a stable but serious condition, while the woman is recovering with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Supt Yeoman said he was "mindful of a reprisal attack''.

Here is a ninemsn link with some footage: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/822517/man-woman-shot-on-sydneys-north-shore

Looks to be a black Gallardo Spyder with a numeric style license plate [ 034 ]. Possible "Kings Cross" identity???

Sydney gunman intended to kill: police

A gunman who waited for two people before shooting them while they sat in a Lamborghini in a suburban north Sydney street set out to kill at least one of the victims, police say.

Police were called to Neerim Road, Castle Cove, about 11.25pm (AEST) on Friday after a number of shots were fired at a 35-year-old man and 23-year-old woman as they sat in the car outside the man's home.

He was at shot five times.

Superintendent Peter Yeomans on Saturday told reporters the gunman had been waiting for his victims.

"I think it would be quite obvious from his injuries, on the upper part of his body, that the person tried to kill the male in the vehicle," Supt Yeomans said.

The shot man sustained injuries to the upper part of his body, stomach and arm.

Police have refused to confirm media reports that the victim is Fadi Ibrahim, whose brother has alleged links to bikie gangs.

Supt Yeomans said police had previously attended the Castle Cove home but would not reveal how many times or why.

Both victims are under police guard in Royal North Shore hospital, he said.

The man needed surgery and is in a stable but serious condition, while the woman is recovering with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Supt Yeoman said he was "mindful of a reprisal attack".

On Saturday there was no sign of the shooting, with residents walking along the street and children riding their bikes.

New crime gang laws 'useless'

TOUGH new laws brought in to crack down on crime gang violence in NSW are useless if not used, the state opposition says as police fear reprisal attacks after another gangland shooting.

Fadi Ibrahim, was shot five times, and his girlfriend once, when ambushed by a gunman as they sat in a black Lamborghini outside his Castle Cove home in Sydney's north on Friday night.

Mr Ibrahim, 35, was hit in the arm, chest and stomach when a weapon was fired through the car window about 11.25pm (AEST) and his 23-year-old girlfriend suffered a leg wound while parked outside his home in Neerim Road, Castle Cove.

He remains in a serious but stable condition after undergoing surgery four times in Royal North Shore Hospital, while his girlfriend was discharged on Saturday after having a bullet removed from her leg.

Fadi Ibrahim, an associate of the Notorious bikie gang, is the younger brother of Kings Cross identity John Ibrahim, who controls several nightclubs.

Another older brother, Sam Ibrahim, is a former senior member of the Nomads bikie club, which split in 2007 to form Notorious.

Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell said the latest act of violence showed police and the NSW government needed to start using their new powers to crack down on crime gangs.

A raft of tough new laws were brought in soon after a bikie brawl at Sydney Airport in March resulted in the death of one man.

This includes giving police the power to ask the Court to declare gangs crime organisations and to stop gang members associating with each other.

"What I'm concerned about is ... police now say (Friday's shooting) is gang-related and two months after declared organisation legislation was passed by the NSW parliament it's yet to be implemented," Mr O'Farrell told reporters on Sunday.

"This is a state government that introduced the tough legislation that's needed to tackle gangs, whether they're bikie or others in this state, but to date has failed to use the declared organisation powers to start cracking down on those ... engaged in this type of violence."

Residents say they heard muffled shots and believe a silencer was used in the gang-style hit.

Police are refusing to comment on their investigation into the shooting, but former NSW police assistant commissioner Clive Small has warned to expect retaliation.

"It would be a very brave or stupid decision to shoot a member of the Ibrahim family in this way," Mr Small told News Ltd.

"If Fadi survives, he will no doubt identify his attackers.

"And I'm sure that he would know who was behind it."

However, the family is understood to have called for calm, with John Ibrahim saying there will not be any retaliation by or on behalf of the family.

Police say they have visited the Castle Cove home in the past but will not reveal why.

Sydney gang war escalates following Castle Cove shooting

SYDNEY's gang war escalated to new heights yesterday with the younger brother of Kings Cross figure John Ibrahim shot five times outside his home.

Police believe the attack on Fadi Ibrahim in his car outside his Castle Cove home on Sydney's North Shore late on Friday night will spark a chain of revenge shootings between warring bikie gangs, The Sunday Telegraph reports.

Ibrahim, an associate of the Notorious bikie gang, was seated in his black Lamborghini with his 23-year-old girlfriend when a lone gunman, who had been waiting on the golf course across the road, walked over and shot him five times in the stomach, chest and arm through the car window.

His girlfriend, Shayda, was shot in her leg. Yesterday, two police officers guarded the door of the Intensive Care Unit at Royal North Shore Hospital where Ibrahim was fighting for his life after "hours" of surgery.

Former NSW assistant police commissioner Clive Small warned there would be retribution for the shooting.

He said: "It would be a very brave or stupid decision to shoot a member of the Ibrahim family in this way. If Fadi survives, he will no doubt identify his attackers.

"And I'm sure that he would know who was behind it."

At least 40 bikie associates and friends of the Ibrahim brothers gathered in support of Fadi at the hospital yesterday.

They were aggressive and hostile when approached by The Sunday Telegraph.

But a family friend said: "With all this s*** happening there's going to be a big hurt coming up."

John Ibrahim, 38, a Kings Cross nightclub promoter, is the most high-profile member of the Ibrahim family.

In the past, he has been the subject of hundreds of police intelligence reports. Ibrahim has consistently denied the allegation put to him during the Wood royal commission in 1996 that he was the "lifeblood of the drugs industry of Kings Cross".

John Ibrahim has never been convicted of a criminal offence.

His three brothers, Hassan (Sam), 43, Fadi, 35, and Michael, 30, are said to have amassed "many powerful enemies". Sam Ibrahim is a former branch president of the Nomads motorcycle club, which splintered in 2007 to form a new club, Notorious.

He denies any link to Notorious or to drugs.

Underworld sources believe the attack may have been designed to send a message to Fadi's older brother, John.

They warned that John may be the next target. Police sources told of how John Ibrahim remained calm as he was delivered the news by officers shortly after the attack.

The attack is understood to have been carried out with a calm, cold precision, with witnesses telling police the gunman turned around and walked away, without running, after he finished discharging the gun.

It is believed a silencer was used in the attack. The gunman calmly walked out of the golf course when Fadi pulled up in his car just before 11.30pm on Friday night and unloaded the weapon. Officers said yesterday investigators were aware of who carried out the attack and were likely to arrest the assailant in the imminent future.

Police sources, meanwhile, claim that Fadi has also been listed in police intelligence files.

John, however, has strongly maintained he has no dealings with the criminal world and all his earnings are completely legitimate. For his part, Fadi has described himself as a construction developer.

Mr Small said the Ibrahim power-base was now under threat. He added: "If there are no reprisals, it simply sends a message to others who might have a disagreement or dispute that the Ibrahims are now vulnerable to attack."

A 17-year-old resident heard the young woman crying out in pain and immediately called an ambulance, potentially saving Mr Ibrahim's life. A police officer from the North Shore Local Area Command arrived at the scene and performed CPR in a bid to revive him.

North Shore Acting Superintendent Peter Yeomans said all possible steps were being taken to minimise further violence.

"At the moment we're asking for assistance from the public in relation to this brutal and violent crime. Police are always mindful of reprisal attacks in relation to victims such as these," he said.

Officers speculate it is the third in a series of attacks that has already left two other men, former Nomads bikie Todd O'Connor and Bandidos associate Milad Sande, dead.

Fadi is known to maintain one of the lowest profiles among the Ibrahim brothers.

Shooting victim Ibrahim 'faces amputation'

Sydney nightclub identity Fadi Ibrahim may have his arm amputated due to severe gunshot wounds as speculation mounts that a methamphetamine "cook" with bikie links was responsible for his shooting.

The Daily Telegraph reports Ibrahim also faces a lifetime of problems with his digestive system after he had part of his intestines removed during surgery on Sunday.

The younger brother of nightclub king John Ibrahim has remained in an induced coma while a steady stream of visitors reportedly including Adam and David Freeman, the sons of late racing identity George have made visits to Royal North Shore Hospital.

It is expected Ibrahim will be brought out of his coma this weekend, at which stage police are likely to intensify their investigation into who shot him.

The Sydney Morning Herald claims a former bikie and methamphetamine manufacturer is a primary focus of the enquiry and has also been the most discussed suspect amongst underworld figures.

The drug cook is also a suspect in an apparent attack on fellow Kings Cross figure Alan Sarkis, who reportedly dined with Ibrahim at the swanky harbourside Catalina restaurant on the night of the shooting.

A vehicle parked outside the apartment where Sarkis was sleeping in July last year was damaged by a pipe bomb and fired upon with an automatic weapon.

Both attacks are believed to be linked to large monetary loans.

Ibrahim lawyer wants cover-up

The nightclub boss John Ibrahim might be known as "king of the Cross" and make regular appearances in the social pages alongside the likes of Paris Hilton, but he has apparently discovered the importance of religious modesty after the shooting of his brother at the weekend. Issuing a statement on behalf of the Ibrahim family, his lawyer, Stephen Alexander, attempted to put off media from photographing family members visiting Fadi Ibrahim in Royal North Shore Hospital on Saturday as they were wearing headscarves.

"Publishing women wearing their religious attire would offer no further insight into the incident and could potentially draw unnecessary attention to their religious beliefs," Alexander wrote to media organisations. He also requested the media respect the privacy of Fadi Ibrahim's girlfriend, Shayda Bastani Rad, who was seated in the passenger seat of Ibrahim's black Lamborghini, but for noticeably different reasons: "Publishing her name and image would serve no purpose apart from compromising her rehabilitation." However, Bastani Rad appeared significantly less publicity shy when posing for the modelling shots, apparently taken at a Kings Cross nightclub, which were splashed across the pages of Sydney newspapers yesterday as she declared that she "saw nothing" and wished it would "all just blow over". Appropriately, the website for Alexanders Lawyers is at www.alibi.com.au.
