Police commenced an investigation a short distance from James Street, where officers found a partially burnt-out Porsche.

Later, police found a second burnt-out Holden Commodore on Cook Lane, Zetland.

“For both vehicles, we are looking at the links to the shooting and to any person involved in the shooting,’’ said Mr Doherty.

The police officer revealed that the deceased was a 48-year-old man from Bondi Junction with an extensive criminal history well known to police, calling him a high-level criminal identity.
