Criminal kingpin Mahmoud Ahmad gunned down in Sydney


Notorious underworld kingpin dubbed ‘Mr Big’ is gunned down in a hail of bullets just days after it was revealed he had a million-dollar bounty on his head

  • Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad has been shot dead in Sydney on Wednesday night 
  • The ‘Mr Big’ of the city’s underworld had recently been released from prison 
  • He had been warned by NSW Police of a million dollar contract placed to kill him  

A notorious underworld crime figure has been killed in a hail of bullets just days after it was revealed a million dollar bounty had been placed on him. 

Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad, known as the ‘Mr Big’ of Sydney’s crime world was shot outside a home on Narelle Crescent in Greenacre about 9.30pm Wednesday. 

NSW Police were aware of a million dollar contract to kill Ahmed placed by rival crime figures and had repeatedly warned him, but he defiantly chose to remain in Sydney.

The gunman fled the scene with a burn-out Porsche four-wheel-drive found shortly after in a nearby street – though it is unconfirmed if the two incidents are linked. 

Ahmed had only recently been released from prison after serving five years for the manslaughter of another underworld figure at a Sydney scrap yard in 2016.
