AAP logoAAP 28/10/2016

The getaway car used in the shooting execution of underworld figure Hamad Assaad in Sydney has been torched on the day of the slain man's funeral.

The 29-year-old was shot in a targeted attack outside his Georges Hall home on Tuesday morning before at least two suspects fled in a black Audi sedan.

The same car was found going up in flames near a park in Birrong early on Friday, police confirmed, ahead of an afternoon memorial for Mr Assaad at Lakemba Mosque.

He was a key suspect in the execution of standover man Walid Ahmad at a Bankstown shopping centre in April.
