A man in his 20s has been shot dead in a suspected drive-by attack on a suburban street at Georges Hall in Sydney's southwest.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said they responded to reports of a shooting at Stuart Avenie at 9.20am this morning.

It is understood the man was found by a neighbour lying in the driveway suffering mutiple gunshot wounds. There are reports he had also been shot in the head.

Aerial footage from Channel 7 shows a white sheet over the body as well as a large quantity of blood on the concrete.

A crime scene has been established and police from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad are involved in the investigation.

An employee of a nearby shop, Robert, told The Daily Telegraph he heard eight to 10 shots and ran outside to see a car speed from the location.

"We heard the shots going off and walked out and saw I'm pretty sure a black Mercedes fly up the road," he said.

Police have since confirmed the vehicle was a black Ausi sedan.

Robert said it sounded like more than one gun was used in the shooting.

"It sounded like there were six (shots) from one gun and then I heard another shot that sounded like it came from another gun," he said.
