THE older brother of nightclub supremo John Ibrahim is in a Sydney hospital after being shot in the leg, sources say.
Former Nomads bikie boss Hassan "Sam" Ibrahim was shot at a property on Price Street, Merrylands this evening.
A police spokeswoman confirmed emergency services were called to a property at 6.45pm (AEDT).
"Police located a man with a gunshot wound," she added.
Officers are expected to reveal more details shortly.
In June 2009, another brother, Fadi Ibrahim, was shot five times as he sat with his girlfriend in his car outside his home in Castle Cove.
Sam Ibrahim was standing outside the house in Sydney's west when he was shot twice in the leg, it is believed.
The bullets were fired from a light-coloured car, witnesses have told police.
Ibrahim, 44, is receiving treatment at Westmead Hospital and is reportedly in a stable condition.
Despite a string of attacks involving bikie gangs in recent months, police insist it is too early to say if the Ibrahim shooting is gang-related.
The car involved in the incident was believed to be carrying a number of passengers.
Price Street was cordoned off by police as detectives searched for forensic evidence.
Neighbours have told how they heard "at least" two blasts.
"I heard something but had no idea it was gunshots," one woman who asked not to be named told AAP.
"There were at least two bangs. Maybe three."
The Ibrahim family will be making no public comment on the attack.
"It's inappropriate to say anything at this stage pending a police investigation," family lawyer Stephen Alexander told AAP.
Maybe someone from the media shot Sammy,maybe that accounts for the obvious lack of marksmanship.
