Po­lice is­sue war­rant over ‘ re­venge hit’

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

HOMI­CIDE de­tec­tives have is­sued an ar­rest war­rant for a gang as­so­ciate who al­legedly helped or­gan­ise a re­venge hit on a teenage boy.

It is be­lieved Ab­dul AbuMah­moud, who was as­so­ci­ated with the Brothers for Life gang, is in Thai­land but nego- tia­tions are un­der way to get him back to Aus­tralia.

A war­rant for his ar­rest for mur­der was is­sued more than a week ago, fol­low­ing a story in The Sun­day Tele­graph about the hunt for Mr AbuMah­moud. He left the coun­try about the time po­lice ar­rested the gun­man al­legedly re­spon­si­ble for shoot­ing dead 15-year-old Bray­den Dil­lon on Good Fri­day in 2017.

Po­lice al­lege Bray­den was killed in ret­ri­bu­tion for his older brother, Joshua Dil­lon, stab­bing an­other young man a year ear­lier. That young man was the nephew of Mr Abu-Mah­moud.

Po­lice turned their fo­cus to Mr Abu-Mah­moud af­ter learn­ing he al­legedly threat­ened Joshua Dil­lon at his court ap­pear­ance and threat­ened to kill his fam­ily.

It will also be al­leged Mr Abu-Mah­moud was in con­tact with Con­rad Craig, 27, lead­ing up to Craig al­legedly shoot­ing Bray­den. Craig has been charged with mur­der but has not en­tered a plea.

Bray­den Dil­lon.
