Dashcam footage from the scene revealed a grey Mazda emerged from the convoy leaving Fawkner Cemetery before spraying bullets at Sam’s Mercedes four-wheel drive.

Despite facing life-threatening injuries, the professional boxer — who dated MAFSJessika in 2019 — drove himself to Fawkner police station to seek help.

The bikie was then taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital to receive treatment. One day after the attack, he was said to be in a stable condition.

The shooting comes just weeks after Sam left the Mongols outlaw gang. Key outlaw figures Toby Mitchell and Mark Balsillie also walked away from the organisation.

Do Authorities Know Who Shot Sam “The Punisher” Abdulrahim?

While the perpetrators remain at large, there is speculation that the gunman — or gunmen — may have also attended the funeral of Sam’s cousin, Naz. There is also increasing public speculation that the Mongols orchestrated the attack.

It is believed the Mazda used in the drive-by had “cloned” number plates attached to it.

The grey vehicle then crashed into a fire hydrant before the shooters carjacked a black Ford Territory along Sydney Road.

A woman and a child were inside the Ford, however, were uninjured.

Police are appealing for witnesses as they investigate the events leading up to the shooting.

How Is Sam Abdulrahim Connected to Jessika Power?

Jessika and Sam reportedly began dating after she ended her short-lived romance with her Married at First Sight co-star Dan Webb.

The 30-year-old was photographed multiple times with the athlete. She also shared a number of loved-up snaps of the pair on Instagram.
