Mr Ho, aged in his 60s, died on the side of a Bankstown road after being shot several times just before 4:00pm on Tuesday in what New South Wales Police described as a “targeted attack”.
Witnesses said the attacker fled on foot, with police confirming the last sighting of the suspect as Stewart Lane in Bankstown, behind the Bankstown City Plaza.
“We will hunt you down,” Homicide Squad Commander Detective Superintendent Scott Cook told the killer in a live press conference.
“We’re confident the shooting was targeted, it was not random.”
Police have described the shooter as Pacific Islander in appearance, with an olive complexion and of medium build.
