- Mustafa Naaman was gunned down in a Mercedes in Sydney’s south Saturday
- He is reportedly a relative of Amin Naaman who is missing, feared murdered
- Amin disappeared while being chased by investors for tens of millions of dollars
- Police investigating possible link between the killing and Amin’s disappearance
A father-to-be shot dead in a Mercedes in Sydney’s south is the relative of an app developer who disappeared while being chased by underworld figures for millions.
Mustafa Naaman was gunned down less than four months after Amin Naaman was declared a missing person amid fears he may have been killed.
Police are now probing whether there is a link between Mustafa’s brutal death and the collapse of Amin’s Naamtech company in 2019, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Mustafa and Amin are reportedly close family relatives.
Mustafa Naaman (pictured), 35, died after he was found with shotgun wounds in a white Mercedes on McMahon Street in Hurstville, Sydney’s south, after 11pm on Saturday
Mustafa is reportedly a relative of Amin Naaman (pictured), an app developer, who has not been seen since he disappeared from Sydney’s west while being chased by investors for tens of millions of dollars
Mustafa, 35, and 23-year-old Mohammed Abdulkader were found with shotgun wounds in a Mercedes on MacMahon Street in Hurstville, after 11pm on Saturday.
Mustafa and Mr Abdulkader had finished watching local boxer Billy Dib take on Joey Baylon of the Philippines at a match in Hurstville when they got into the vehicle.
They were sprayed with a hail of bullets, with both men taken to hospital before Mustafa died from his injuries. Mr Abdulkader remains in a stable condition.
The gunman is on the run and it is not yet known how many people were involved.
Footage from horrified bystanders showed members of the public attempting to help the men after the shooting.
Paramedics arrived on scene before one of the men was lifted onto an ambulance stretcher, as a man was heard from behind the camera saying ‘Breathe brother, breathe’.

Mustafa was reportedly not known for any underworld activity. There is no suggestion Mr Abdulkader had any connections to Amin or Naamtech.
Amin has not been seen since he disappeared from Sydney’s west while being chased by investors for tens of millions of dollars.
Underworld figures turned on each other to recoup their investment money after Amin’s business went bust.
The Australian Taxation Office has also reportedly been pursuing the 35-year-old for at least $7million.
Police established a crime scene and are investigating the incident following the public shooting on Saturday night
Authorities believe Amin either left Australia on a fake passport or has been murdered
Strike Force Raptor started investigating after a series of shootings in southwest Sydney.
Authorities believe Amin either left Australia on a fake passport or has been murdered.
NSW Police officially declared him a missing person in October last year but he is not wanted on any criminal charges.
Amin was understood to have been last seen at a pharmacy in Glenelg, Adelaide, in November 2019 but neither his wife Marta or other relatives reported him missing.
Investigations into Saturday night’s shooting remain ongoing.
