The baby-face gangster who was shot dead alongside his father in Sydney's northwest was on a list of suspects in another murder, it has been revealed. 

Salim Hamze, 18, and his father Toufik Hamze, 64, were killed in a spray of bullets as they sat in the front seat of a red utility in Guildford on Wednesday. 

It is understood police were investigating whether the 18-year-old had anything to do with the murder of Shady Kanj, who was shot dead in Chester Hill in August.

Kanj, 22, moved drugs for the Alameddine family - the Hamze's rival gang - and is the only member to so far be killed in the turf war, the Daily Telegraph reported. 

The 22-year-old was struck by a bullet while sitting in a car driving on Boundary Rd, Chester Hill in Western Sydney about 11pm on August 7.   

Salim Hamze is said to have been warned he was a possible target as a reprisal for a drive-by shooting at Assad Alahmad's home, brother-in-law of rival crime boss Rafat Alameddine. 

The 18-year-old and his father were just about to leave for work when they were fatally shot outside their dilapidated home just before 9am on Wednesday. 

The single father had gunshot wounds to the head and died in hospital, while his son suffered multiple injuries and died at the scene. 

Neighbours have since insisted Toufik was an innocent victim caught in the crossfire aimed at his 18-year-old son, who was involved in gangs.
