Brendon “Lolly” Davids, 45, was killed by a man known to the family in the lounge of his Major Calvert Street flat.
Davids’ partner, Yvonne van Schalkwyk, said she believes he was killed as part an ongoing gang war in the Wentworth area.
“About four weeks ago he was chased by a group of guys who had knives and guns as he was walking to his friend’s home. It was soon after that when these same boys shot five times outside our windows as some sort of warning,” she said.
It is alleged that Davids was targeted for his association with a friend who allegedly sells drugs.
