The man who was shot while sitting in a car on a Sydney suburban street has been identified as 24-year-old Marvin Oraiha.
New South Wales Police Commissioner Karen Webb called the shooting of Oraiha “very brazen” as police are also investigating whether two burned-out cars are linked to the shooting on Hertfordshire Street in Elizabeth Hills on Monday afternoon.
Police were called to the scene around 4pm and arrived to find Oraiha with multiple gunshot wounds. First responders tried to revive him, but he died at the scene.
A resident on the street said he was sitting down to a late lunch when he heard “boom boom boom.” He ran to the window and saw a white car speed away.
Liverpool City Police Area Command officers and Homicide investigators identified a crime scene on Hertfordshire Street and two other locations where burning cars were found.
About ten minutes after the shooting, a burning car was found on Bluff Street in Green Valley – a six-minute drive away.
A few minutes later, a second car was found on Lewis Street in Bonnyrigg Heights – a seven-minute drive from the shooting.
