Questions Raised Over Tongan Sam's Shooting

Questions have been raised over the shooting of John Ibrahim's bodyguard at a home in Sydney's west over the weekend.

Initially it was believed that Semi "Tongan Sam" Ngata had been hit in the back by a shot fired over the fence of Ibrahim's mother's house in Merrylands on Friday.

But as the 59-year-old maintains the Ibrahim's "code of silence", investigators are now looking into the possibility that Mr Ngata wasn't even at the property when he was shot.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that Mr Ngata was also hit in the front of his body rather than his back, as police were initially told, and that the infamous bodyguard is refusing to talk any further.

"Big Sam would never say a word to anyone," a source told the publication. 

While it was initially thought that the shooting may have been connected to the wedding of Ibrahim's nephew Sam Sayour and Salim Mehajer's sister Aisha - which took place at the property less than 24 hours after the incident - officers are now said to be looking into a number of other theories.
