Mr Marcus has been associated with DLASTHR or “The Last Hour”: a street gang police say has been involved in murders, extortions, shootings, fire bombings, intimidation and drug supply.

The group emerged from Sydney’s Assyrian community in the mid-2000s as an offshoot of the Assyrian Kings, which was involved in the stabbing and bashing murder of off-duty police officer David Carty in 1997.

It became less prominent and police claimed to have dismantled the gang in 2014 .

But DLASTHR was allegedly behind a string of violent crimes in the Fairfield area in 2016, including fatal shootings and fire bombings, in an ongoing gang feud over drug turf with another Assyrian gang, The True Kings.

Mr Marcus and two junior members were arrested over an Edensor Park shooting in May 2016, charged with shooting with intent to murder and participation in an organised criminal group.

He remains in hospital undergoing treatment after November’s shooting.

Mr Marcus survived another shooting in June last year, when he was shot in the face following an argument in the street during broad daylight in Bonnyrigg Heights.

He presented himself to hospital with facial wounds three days later and was charged with concealing information from police after the incident.

Detectives from the state crime command’s criminal groups squad have taken control of the investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers online or on 1800 333 000.
