Man shot dead in Sydney

A man has died on a footpath after being shot in Sydney's southwest.

Police and ambulance paramedics responded to reports of a shooting at Equity Place in Canley Vale at about 2.45am on Sunday to find a man aged in his 20s on a footpath suffering gunshot wounds.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, the man died at the scene.

It's believed the shooting was not random.

A crime scene has been established and police are urging anyone with information on the shooting to contact police.

Meanwhile, police are investigating an incident at Hinchinbrook, also in Sydney's southwest, after a man driving a car escaped injury when the rear passenger windows sustained suspected gunshot damage.

"A 32-year-old man, who had been driving the car at the time of the incident, was not injured," police said.

Police were called to the incident at South Liverpool Road at about 2.25am on Sunday and have seized a black Holden Barina for forensic examination.

A police spokeswoman said it was not known at this stage if the two shootings are linked.
