Police Raid John Ibrahim's Mother's House After Shooting

Police have carried out a number of raids across western Sydney as their investigation into the shooting of John Ibrahim's long-term bodyguard continues.

Semi "Tongan Sam" Ngata was shot in the back at Ibrahim's mother's property in Merrylands on Friday night as he helped the family set-up for a wedding the following day.

Wahiba Ibrahim's home was one of several houses raided on Tuesday afternoon as police continue their search for the unknown gunman.

"A number of search warrants are underway in south-western Sydney this evening," a NSW Police spokeswoman said.

"The search warrants relate to ongoing investigations into a previous shooting incident in Merrylands last week."

It was reported earlier this week that 59-year-old Ngata is sticking to the family's "code of silence" and is refusing to speak to detectives as he recuperates in hospital.

"Big Sam would never say a word to anyone," a source told The Daily Telegraph.

Police have also appealed for information about two vehicles they believe may be linked to the shooting.

A late-model, dark metallic blue Subaru WRX was found burnt out on Rees Street at Mays Hill shortly after the incident and is suspected to have been the attacker's getaway car.

That and a second car - a similar Subaru - were stolen from a home in Pemulwuy on October 29.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
