A teenager has been accused of being involved in planning the alleged murders of a father and son in west Sydney.
Toufik Hamze, 64, and his son Salim, 18, were gunned down while sitting in a red ute outside their Guildford home early on October 20, 2021.
Salim died in the car while his father later died in hospital.

The deaths have been linked to an ongoing feud between the Hamze and Alameddine crime families.
Homicide commander Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said Toufik was an innocent man who was killed due to his son’s gang involvement.
“Toufik Hamzy died because his son was involved in the criminal milieu, but neither the community nor the police will tolerate the slaughter of an innocent man and those responsible should know they are on loan,” Doherty said.
The State Crime Command Homicide Unit set up Strike Force Ormerod to investigate the murders believed to be gang-related.
An 18-year-old man was arrested at Gosford Police Station on Thursday.
He was charged with two counts of murder and involvement in the criminal activities of a criminal group.
“Police will allege in court that the man was involved in the planning and coordination of the murder,” NSW Police said.
The 18-year-old was taken into custody and is due to appear before a children’s court on Friday.
Two other men, aged 20 and 25, were previously charged for their alleged role in the incident.
