Comancheros enforcer Tarek Zahed is fighting for life in hospital after being shot in a hail of bullets while at the gym with his younger brother.

Zahed and his brother Omar were shot multiple times inside the Bodyfit gym in Sydney's Auburn on Tuesday night, leaving both men with catastrophic injuries.

Omar, believed to be in his 20s, went into cardiac arrest after suffering several gunshot wounds to his stomach, arms and legs - later dying at the scene. 

His bikie enforcer brother, 41, was hit by 10 bullets to his body, including to his head, before being rushed to Westmead Hospital where he was still in an 'extremely' critical condition as of 3am on Wednesday. 

Underworld figures say the high profile bikie boss had been warned to 'play it safe' by changing his daily routine - with friends even begging him to stop going to the gym where he was shot - after learning a $1million bounty had been put out on him by rivals.

But he ignored the grave warnings that his life was in danger, and is now paying the price.

The pair were known to frequent the gym and even posted multiple pictures to social media showing them working out.

The deadly shooting is the latest incident in the ongoing feud between the Hamzy and Alameddine crime clans and comes two weeks after the shooting death of Mahmoud Ahmad, who was gunned down in Greenacre a fortnight ago.

NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb has announced 30 additional police will be deployed to crackdown on the escalating gang war in Sydney's west. 

It's understood those close to him had recently warned Tarek to 'play it safe' as he had a $1million bounty on his head.

'They warned him the other week: "Stop going to the gym, change your routine", but he didn't listen. They are fuming,' a bikie source told the Daily Telegraph.

Police and underworld sources confirmed they were aware of the bounty.

'Everyone's talking about the whispers around Tarek, but no one knows who is behind it,' an underworld source claimed.

The publication reported earlier this week Tarek was regarded as a marked man by heavyweight of the Hamzy crime network long before the bounty was recently placed on his head.

It comes as unlikely union formed between the Alameddine family and the Commancheros, with Zahed under increasing pressure from arch-rivals the Hamzy crew. 

Police intercepted a call between jailed Brothers 4 Life gang boss Bassam Hamzy and his brother Ghassan Amoun on October 14, 2020.

Hamzy called his brother from Goulburn Supermax jail asking for Tarek's phone number, according to NSW Supreme Court documents.

'Hamzy asked Amoun to contact Emad Sleiman and 'tell him straight out is he speaking with Tarek Zahed, if he is, get Tarek Zahed's number off him,' the court

'Amoun said Zahed was in jail, but Hamzy said Zahed was definitely not in jail.

'It was highly likely Zahed was at risk from Hamzy and Hamzy's associates in the community.'

Fifteen months later, Amoun was gunned down as he left a beauty salon at Wentworthville in Sydney's west.

Several days after Ahmad's death, Zahred, known as the 'Balenciaga Bikie', was arrested and charged with two counts of contravening serious crime prevention order as NSW Police continued its crackdown on organised crime.
