During his murder trial, gruesome photos taken in the blood-soaked Mercedes where a former bike boss was shot have been shown.

Mahmoud ‘Mick’ Hawi was shot during an alleged daylight execution outside Fitness First in Rockdale, south Sydney, on February 15, 2018.

Yusuf Nazlioglu, 38, and Jamal Eljaidi, 32, are charged with the murder of Hawi. Both deny their alleged role in the murder.

Photos taken by police on Wednesday and presented to the court show Hawi’s luxurious 4WD full of bullet holes and grenades.

A receptionist at the gym told the court that she felt glass behind her neck as a gunman executed Sydney’s identity outside the front doors of her workplace.

Stephanie Nicolaou was at the front desk when she saw a man in a black hoodie walking to Mr. Hawi’s car, which was parked a few feet from the front door of the gym.

“The next minute I heard bang bang bang,” she told the NSW Supreme Court on Wednesday.

“I didn’t know what was going on until I saw the bullet holes on the other side.”

Nazlioglu has pleaded not guilty to the murder of his former close friend.

Ms. Nicolaou said she hid behind the gym counter when she realized she was yards from the firing gun.

“I panicked and tried to take cover,” she said.

“At first I felt the glass drop behind my neck.”

Another eyewitness, gym client Matthew Kellaway, pulled into the parking lot and parked his car seconds before the fatal shots were fired.

He heard loud bangs, looked in his rearview mirror and saw a man dressed in black standing by the car.

“ It was a pretty animated kind of thing, (he reached out) a little bit in the car and then they sprinted away pretty quickly, ” Mr Kellaway told the trial Wednesday.

Mr. Kellaway took a medical bag from his car and found that Mr. Hawi was unresponsive in the car.

During a cross-examination, he admitted seeing the incident through two rows of parked cars and that it was ‘very short’.

CCTV from a camera across the gym parking lot showed the shooter in Mr. Hawi’s car reaching, firing the shots, and then sprinting to a waiting car.

That car, allegedly driven by Jamal Eljaidi who also pleaded not guilty to murder, was set on fire minutes after the shooting, the jury has been told.

The men are accused of moving into a second car, which is found in Rosebery a month later with a balaclava in the footwell of a front seat.

DNA matching Eljaidi’s has been found in that car, but his lawyer has suggested that there may be secondary transmission.

Nazlioglu denies being the balaclava-clad gunman, while his lawyer told the jury on Tuesday that others had a greater motive for killing.

Mr. Hawi became the national president of the Comancheros at the age of 22, but gave up the role in 2009 when he was sent to prison.

He later had tension with Comancheros leader Mark Buddle, but Mr. Hawi’s wife Carolina Gonzalez said on Tuesday that the trial was unrelated to the engine.

Ms. Nicolaou is expected to resume her evidence Friday after technical issues affected her ability to make video calls from the highway.

The trial will resume on Thursday as other witnesses testify.
