A man will remain in police custody, charged with murder, after a Victorian man was found shot dead inside a minibus in Sydney's south.

Brett Jardine, 43, was found in the campervan at a car park on Garema Circuit, Kingsgrove, just after 10.15am on Wednesday.

The homicide squad raided an industrial premises on the same street where the minibus was found on Saturday and found a gun and ammunition.

That evening, they arrested Simon Slavko Stojic, 45, at Tregear, in western Sydney.

He was charged with murder and firearms offences and appeared at Parramatta Local Court on Sunday.

Bail was not applied for and it was formally refused.

Family members and coworkers paid respect to Mr Jardine's sense of humour and warmth on social media.

A fundraiser was started online to collect money for Mr Jardine's grieving family.

"Brett always had a way of finding light in most situations, his cheeky grin and care free attitude will be sorely missed," fundraiser organiser Jackson Hopkins wrote online.

Stokjic is scheduled to reappear before Sutherland Local Court on Monday.
