Second woman identified in fatal Revesby shooting as policing is ramped up to prevent revenge attack

A hairdresser who had joined her friend on a night out has been identified as the second victim of an “unprecedented” gangland execution in south-west Sydney.

Police believe Amy Hazouri, 39, may have been collateral damage when she was fatally shot inside a car alongside Sydney mother Lameta Fadlallah, 48, in Revesby on Saturday night.

The pair were sitting in a silver Toyota 4WD with a 16-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man when a gunman pulled up beside the vehicle and opened fire.

Ms Fadlallah died at the scene while Ms Hazouri was rushed to Liverpool Hospital in a critical condition where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Devastated colleagues at Ms Hazouri’s salon in Bankstown paid tribute to the respected hair stylist on Sunday.

“We are shattered, our heart is broken, you left us too soon,” the tribute read.

“May your memory be eternal god bless your soul until we meet again.”

The brazen assassination of two women has concerned police amid fears gangland bosses have torn up the “rulebook” which stipulated women and children were off limits in violent attacks.

“There used to be an unwritten law that you don’t touch family and you don’t touch women,” Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said on Sunday.

“That’s been thrown out of the window, they don’t care anymore.

“They don’t discriminate if you’re male or female. Every rule book has been thrown out, and that is concerning.”

Police believe the shooting was an organized attack and that the women and their friends were “heading for a night out” when they were set upon.

“One theory is that it was a targeted attack on the 48-year-old woman because of her past relationships with other known identities,” Mr Doherty said.

“It appears that the 39-year-old woman who was sitting next to her is just a completely innocent party to all this and she has lost her life as a result of this.”

Police said the two other occupants – a 16-year-old girl and 20-year-old man – were “incredibly lucky” to have escaped uninjured.

Detectives say “proactive policing” was now underway to prevent revenge attacks.

Strike Force Laurantus has been established, with assistance from gang squad officers as well as Strike Force Raptor – a taskforce focused on outlaw motorcycle gang activity.

“And it’s always concerning: What’s the repercussions of all this? But we’re going to be doing our best to try [to] suppress that,” Mr Doherty said.



Two women killed after shots fired into a car in south-west Sydney

Two women have died following a shooting in Sydney’s south-west overnight.

Emergency services were called to Weston Street in Revesby around 9pm Saturday following reports of a shooting.

Neighbor Peter Aitkin was outside his house when he saw a number of cars arriving at high speed.

“Three cars came rushing down the street to my right and pulled up out the front,” he said.

“There was a lot of moaning from the men. They were obviously distressed about something.”

Several people got out of the cars and appeared to be highly agitated.

“There were people walking from one car to another,” he said.

“The men were speaking in a language I could understand.”

Around the same time, I have heard police sirens blaring in the background.

“The first police car that turned up, the two guys got out and everything calmed down.”

Mr Aitkin said he did not hear any gunshots and believed the shootings must have happened earlier at another location.

I have watched as police officers pulled two injured women from one of the cars.

“These two policemen went to work on the lady and they worked so hard on her,” he said.

Despite their efforts, a 48-year-old woman died at the scene from gunshot wounds.

A 39-year-old woman was rushed to Liverpool Hospital in a critical condition but has since died.

Two other occupants in the car, a man and a woman, were unhurt.

“I brought a flower out and the police put it on the lady that was lying on the footpath here,” said Peter.
