At the same time the shooting was unfolding, a damaged Porsche was located on nearby James St in Bondi Junction.

The vehicle was unsuccessfully set on fire. A gun, bullet casings and phone were located by police inside the car.

A second burnt-out vehicle was also found on Cook Lane in Zetland.

Three crime scenes were subsequently established.

Two men have now been arrested following the execution of search warrants at two properties on Wednesday morning.

A 42-year-old man was arrested at a Yowie Bay property about 6am on Wednesday.

It is expected he will be charged with murder and other offences relating to the co-ordination of Moradian’s shooting.

A 31-year-old man was also arrested at a Moorebank property about 6am on Wednesday.

It is expected he will be charged with murder.

Moradian was jailed in 2011 for his role in the so-called “Golden Gun” drug ring, which imported at least 200kg of cocaine into Australia.

His crime was motivated by “personal profit and greed”, a judge claimed.

The proceeds were used to deck out his Pennant Hills mansion — which had been nicknamed the “Versace Palace”.

At least nine shootings have taken place in Sydney since Moradian’s alleged murder.

In July, the city was rocked by five shootings in as many days.

A month later, a teenager was shot in a drive-by shooting in Wetherill Park.

A man in his 20s was then shot in Bidwill on September 10.

Last week, two men were shot in two separate incidents in Campsie and Blackett.

Task Force Magnus was established in July as a policing strategy to target and disrupt gun-related and violent crime, and to investigate links between recent organised criminal activity in Sydney.

Its investigations remain ongoing.
