The Mazda, which was stolen from the Hunters Hill area on October 5, was found burnt down in Blacktown.
Investigators are looking into whether the gang’s botched strike is linked to an ongoing feud between the Hamza and Alamuddin families.
Detectives from Strike Force Barbery are now appealing to anyone with information about the vehicle, or possibly anyone acting suspiciously in the Hunters Hill area on that date, to come forward.
Detective chief, crime group leader Grant Taylor said that anyone who might have seen a dashcam from the shooting area is also being urged to contact the police.
“The shooting site is located within an industrial estate and we hope that truck drivers, courier workers and other motorists will have a dashcam that will be useful in our investigations — even if it is before the day of the shooting,” Det Suppet Taylor said.
“Any dashcam owners who were near the Stoddard Road industrial area, as well as Flushcombe Road, Reservoir Road, and the Great Western Expressway between 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM that day, we urge them to come forward.
“We are also confident that the Mazda – which was dark metallic and had distinctive black roof racks – was traveling with other vehicles around the time of the shooting.
“The police are seeking to identify the occupants of Mazda and additional vehicles, so I implore you to look closely at CCTV and to contact the police if you can help our ongoing inquiries.
“The shootings in public places endanger the lives of innocent individuals, and in this case, bullet holes were left in the children’s play area where young children were being cared for at the time.
“Investigating violence that puts our community at risk is the police’s highest priority, and all perpetrators – as well as those who facilitate or assist them – will be prosecuted.”
The men involved in the shooting are still on the run.
