Shots fired into home and car narrowly missed baby

A nine-month-old baby girl has escaped injury after bullets were fired into an Auburn home and parked vehicle in Sydney's west. Emergency services were called following reports shots had been fired just before 8.30am on January 9 2020.


The shots hit Hadi Bourghiba's home, missing his granddaughter. "(It) made us take my daughter to hospital because she suffered anxiety, shock," Bourghiba said. "Makes me think now of moving places because of my daughter."

Initial police inquiries suggest the intended target was Mahdy Zaoud. His brother, Ahmed, was shot in October 2019 after being the only who got a return on an investment in a failed tech start-up funded by members of Sydney's underworld.


No one was injured and police officers are urging anyone who saw a late-model white BMW sedan leaving the area at the time to come forward.
