One of the men, who has not been formally identified, died at the scene and the second man was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but later he also succumbed to his injuries.

A crime scene has been established, which will be examined by specialist forensic police.

The daylight shooting is believed to be linked to a gangland feud between the Hamze and Alameddine families, the ABC understands.

The publication has identified the father and son as Toufik Hamze and Salim Hamze.

The underworld war between the Hamze and Alameddine families most recently claimed the life of Bilal Hamze, who was ambushed and executed by gunmen in Sydney's CBD in June.

The investigation is ongoing.
