It came after Sydney criminal lawyer, Mahmoud Abbas, was shot in a targeted attack in Greenacre in Sydney’s south-west yesterday.
Detective Superintendent Adam Johnson said an unknown person approached the criminal defence lawyer as he was about to enter his car and shot him, according to Detective Superintendent Adam Johnson.
“It is a brazen, clearly targeted shooting,” Johnson said on Wednesday.
“The motive and the reasoning behind it at this stage is too early to speculate”.

The incident injured three people, including a 25-year-old man in critical condition and a 22-year-old man and 19-year-old woman with juries.
