An 18-year-old man has been arrested over the brazen shooting of south-west Sydney teenager Omar Elomar almost a fortnight ago.
Omar Elomar, 18, who is a relative of killed Islamic State fighter Mohamed Elomar, was shot at point blank range at Miller just after 11:00pm on February 15.
Police said he was sitting in the driver's seat of a car on Cabramatta Avenue when he was allegedly approached by a group of men and shot in the chest.
Homicide detectives said Elomar and a group of his relatives were in Cabramatta Avenue to meet another group of men.
The two groups had arranged to meet to discuss a fight between two younger boys the day before.
Detectives allege Elomar was shot in "cold blood" in what they described as an unprovoked attack.
An 18-year-old man was arrested at Surry Hills Police Station yesterday and charged with Mr Elomar's murder.
He was refused bail and will face Central Local Court this morning.
The same man was arrested last week and charged with concealing a serious crime over the shooting.
Police allege he acted as a go-between and arranged the meeting between the two groups.
Investigations into the shooting are continuing with police appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.
