Man charged with murder after Victorian man shot dead in Sydney car park

A MAN will front court today, charged with the shooting murder of a Victorian man who was gunned down in a car park in Sydney’s south earlier this week.

Brett Jardine, 43, was found shot dead in a camper van parked in a car park on Garema Circuit in Kingsgrove just after 10.15am on Wednesday, 26 July.

Homicide detectives established Strike Force Glyde to investigate the circumstances surrounding his death.


Following investigations, strike force officers, along with the South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad, raided an industrial property on Garema Circuit yesterday afternoon.

A number of items relevant to the investigation were seized, including a firearm and ammunition.

A 45-year-old man was then arrested a few hours later at Tregear.

He was taken to Mt Druitt Police Station and charged with one count of murder and multiple firearms offences.

The Kingsgrove man was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court later today.
