Former Lone Wolf bikie Yusuf Nazlioglu has died after being shot multiple times in a car park in Sydney’s inner west.

Police and emergency services were called to Walker Street in Rhodes about 6.30pm on Monday where they found Nazlioglu, who had been shot several times.

He was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Westmead hospital. He died on Tuesday morning.

NSW Police said the shooting appeared to be targeted. So far, no arrests have been made.

The shooting is the latest in a number of gang-related incidents in the city.

In May, Rami Iskander was shot dead in Belmore, in Sydney’s south-west, just one month after his uncle, Mahmoud “Brownie” Ahmad, was killed in Greenacre.

Nazlioglu, a member of the Lone Wolf Bikie Club, is not known to be connected to the current feud between the Hamzy and Alameddine gangs.

In 2020, Nazlioglu was one of two men found not guilty of murdering then-Comanchero boss Mick Hawi in 2018. Hawi was shot dead in the car park of Rockdale’s Fitness First.

Nazlioglu was also charged with an unrelated gun offence following the 2018 arrest, when he was found with a gun in contravention of a firearm prohibition. He was sentenced to three years in prison and made parole in September last year.

He also served seven years between 2002 and 2009 after he repeatedly stabbed an unknown man who’d been walking home with his wife and child. He was charged with maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent. Nazlioglu later said he’d been on cocaine at the time.

Officers from Burwood police area command established a crime scene and have commenced inquiries with the assistance of a number of specialist units.

As inquiries continue, police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage to come forward and contact Burwood police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
