The white Hyundai Accent was found abandoned at The Terrace, Birchgrove the next day. It had bullet holes in the passenger side of the vehicle and damage from the crash.

Blood was also found inside the vehicle.

Investigators later released an image of a man seen loitering in a nearby underground car park and believe he may be able to assist with their inquiries.
