Assyrian gang shooting victim linked to Sydney gangland murder

An Assyrian gang associate shot dead at a family park was being investigated for links to a major Sydney underworld murder before his execution.

Before Antonio Hermiz, 20, was gunned down in broad daylight in Wetherill Park last month, he was in the frame as a person of interest in the shooting of former bikie Adrian Buxton.


Mr Hermiz and four others met another group of young men at Lizard Log Park in a western Sydney parklands on December 23.

An argument broke out, while families and children enjoyed a playground nearby, and ended with Mr Hermiz being shot dead.

He died at the scene while his friend, 18-year-old Ronaldo Odisho, was shot but survived.

Before the fatal shooting, police had received information Mr Hermiz had, and was possibly hiding, the car used in the slaying of Mr Buxton, a former Lone Wolf bikie, outside his Colyton home in May, 2016.
