Sam Ibrahim now in a stable condition
Just two months after earlier drive-by
Neighbours say they heard two blasts
THE older brother of nightclub supremo John Ibrahim is in a Sydney hospital after being shot in the leg, sources say.
Former Nomads bikie
boss Hassan "Sam" Ibrahim was shot at a property on Price Street,
Merrylands, this evening.
A police spokeswoman confirmed emergency services were called to a property at 6.45pm (AEDT).
"Police located a man with a gunshot wound," she added.
The shooting happened less than two months after a drive-by shooting at the Ryde home of Armani Stelio, a sister of the Ibrahim brothers.
Following the attack on his sister's home, "Sam" was shown in television footage speaking to police at her property.
In June 2009, another brother, Fadi Ibrahim, was shot five times as he sat with his girlfriend in his car outside his home in Castle Cove.
Sam Ibrahim was
standing outside the house in Sydney's west when he was shot twice
in the leg, it is believed.
The bullets were fired from a light-coloured car, witnesses have told police.
Mr Ibrahim, 44, is receiving treatment at Westmead Hospital and is reportedly in a stable condition.
Despite a string of
attacks involving bikie gangs in recent months, police insist it is
too early to say if the Ibrahim shooting is gang-related.
The car involved in the incident was believed to be carrying a number of passengers.
Price Street was cordoned off by police as detectives searched for forensic evidence.
Neighbours have told how they heard "at least" two blasts.
"I heard something but had no idea it was gunshots," one woman who asked not to be named told AAP.
"There were at least two bangs. Maybe three."
The Ibrahim family will be making no public comment on the attack.
"It's inappropriate to say anything at this stage pending a police investigation," family lawyer Stephen Alexander told AAP
