Police believe about a dozen people were involved in the alleged deadly brawl. 

Several were arrested in the following hours following an intense search via PolAir helicopter. 

One adult, 21-year-old Panashe Karise, plus four 17-year-olds have been charged with a series of offences. A boy, 13, was also arrested, but has not been charged. 

Overnight friends flooded social media with tributes the 18-year-old, an aspiring rapper. 

One said 'fly high young king', another described him as a 'soulja' and several said 'long live Ollie'.

The death comes exactly four weeks after 16-year-old boy Jason Galleghan was allegedly beaten to death inside a Doonside housing commission home, just kilometres away.  

Superintendent Steve Eggington from Blacktown Police confirmed that 'postcode wars' were also a line of inquiry for detectives in this latest alleged incident.  

'It's part of the investigation at the moment,' said Supt Eggington, who added the alleged violence was 'quite confronting'. 

'It's tragic we're getting young kids involved in these types of incidents.' 

Confronting video showed officers leading a young man from the scene, his hands in paper bags to preserve evidence.

During a line search on Thursday, officers allegedly found broken butcher's knives and batons scattered around the streets. 

The crime scene stretched for about a kilometre, police said. 

Police believe the brawl involved two different groups and are appealing for CCTV or any in-car video from witnesses.

With kind eyes and still chubby cheeks, this is Jason Galleghan - the boy, 16, who was allegedly beaten to death by a pack of teenagers in Sydney's west four weeks ago. 

Four boys and two girls - aged between 13 and 19 - have been charged with Jason's murder after he was allegedly bashed at a Doonside housing commission home. 

Jason's mother gave permission for his identity to be published, as his best mate launches an effort to stamp out senseless youth violence.
