Five arrested after dawn raids over drive-by shooting

Five men have been arrested in dawn raids as more than 100 police investigate a drive-by shooting in Sydney's south-west.

The officers, from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad, Tactical Operations Unit and police from the South-Western Metropolitan Region, on Wednesday morning raided a number of properties believed to be linked to a shooting in Old Guildford in July.

The suburbs targeted include Merrylands, Bankstown and Punchbowl.

A police spokeswoman said the raids had now been completed but investigations were continuing.

Two men already have been charged over the the Old Guildford shooting on July 21, in which a 35-year-old mother was grazed by a bullet that came through the bedroom window of her Broughton Street home. Her three children were also inside at the time, but were not injured.

Bilal Haoucher, 26, has been extradited from Queensland over the shooting, along with Mark Buddle, the 28-year-old national head of the Comancheros, who was extradited over a separate matter.
