Two men captured on CCTV footage are being sought by police to find out who shot dead a notorious Sydney drug lord.
Alen Moradian, 48, was shot dead on June 27 as he sat in his car near the busy Bondi Junction shopping district in Sydney’s east.
The murder sparked a spate of shootings and gang violence across Sydney.
Footage of two men described by police as African-looking and of tall, slim build has been released as detectives search for those responsible for the executions.

A man can be seen wearing a dark blue hoodie and sweatpants as well as black and white sneakers.
The other is wearing a black hoodie and track pants with black sneakers.
Police are appealing to anyone who knows her identity or whereabouts to come forward.
Last month, two men were charged with Moradian’s murder.
Police believe a 42-year-old man was the “mastermind” behind the shooting, which they believe was motivated by outstanding debts.

A 31-year-old man has also been charged and is accused of helping to coordinate the brazen daytime attack.
Both men cannot be named for legal reasons.
Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Weinstein previously said police did not believe the two men were the gunmen and were searching for the perpetrator.
“The allegations are that the 42-year-old and the 31-year-old did not commit the crime themselves,” he said.
“They gave the imprimatur, they gave the green light or gave the instructions for implementation.”
Det Supt Weinstein confirmed half a million dollars was owed to an organized crime group.
“The money was not owed to these two individuals themselves, but to other organized crime units,” he said.
After a spate of public shootings following Moradian’s killing, police set up a task force in July to crack down on gun violence and organized crime gangs.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts or identities of the two men is asked to come forward
