A second man has been charged over the fatal shooting of another man in Sydney‘s southwest more than six months ago.

Rami Iskander, 23, was found with gunshot wounds in the early hours of May 14 on Belmore street and died at the scene.

It is understood two gunmen shot Iskander dead on the driveway of his home, before two burnt-out vehicles were found in the nearby suburbs of Croydon Park and Bexley North.

The police investigation formed part of ongoing inquiries by Taskforce Erebus into several fatal shootings and criminal activities by organised crime networks across Sydney.

A 42-year-old man was charged over the shooting in October and remains before the courts.

On Wednesday a 29-year-old man was arrested in Sydney’s CBD and charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder and concealing a serious indictable offence.

Police will allege in court that the man provided direct assistance to persons involved in the incident following the murder.

He was refused bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday.

Iskander’s uncle, Ahmad, also known as Sydney’s ‘Mr Big’, was shot dead on a suburban street in Greenacre, in the city’s southwest, on April 27 this year. 

Raptor Squad police patrolling nearby performed CPR with vision of the harrowing scene showing ‘Mr Big’ fighting for his life, but they were unable to revive him.
