A TEENAGER who survived a shooting two weeks ago has been killed overnight in a car park in Sydney's south.

Bassil Hijazi, 19, was one of two men killed in separate shootings in Sydney's south overnight, but police do not believe the incidents are linked.

Mr Hijazi was treated by paramedics at an address in Albyn Street, Bexley about 9.45pm (AEST) on Monday after being shot several times, just a kilometre from where he was shot on July 11.

The shooting is the latest in a bloody wave of shootings across Sydney.

Mr Hijazi was a Comanchero bikie gang member and had survived being shot in the neck two weeks ago when his car was peppered with bullets.

That shooting was an apparent revenge attack for the killings of two Hells Angels bikies.

According to The Daily Telegraph witnesses said Mr Hijazi ran towards the road and collapsed in a pool of blood.

Last night, Hijazi was taken to St George Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Specialist forensic officers are at the scene of the incident.

A neighbour and friend, Hussein Abdallah, told the Telegraph he heard six loud gunshots.

"He got caught up in dumb stuff, you have to be prepared to die if you get caught up in stuff like that."

In a separate incident in Earlwood about 9.30pm, police and emergency services responded to reports of shots being fired at a Charleston Avenue address.

A 35-year-old man sustained several gunshot wounds and was transferred to St George Hospital where he underwent surgery, but he died early on Tuesday.

Although both investigations are in their early stages, police do not believe the shootings are linked.
