The Mt Druitt man arrived at the hospital at 12.53am on Saturday suffering from two gunshot wounds.

Medical staff resuscitated the 32-year-old before performing emergency surgery. He died from his injuries a short time later.

Liverpool City Police superintendent Adam Whyte said the man appeared to be the victim of a targeted attack.

"It does appear that it's targeted. It doesn't appear to be random," he told reporters.

Supt Whyte said a man in a blue vehicle dropped the victim at the hospital and police had the vehicle.

"Another male dropped him at hospital. That's an avenue we're pursuing."

Supt Whyte declined to say more about the man who drove to the hospital.

"We are investigating with State Crime Command and inquiries into locations associated with the blue vehicle in our custody," he said.

Strike Force Heye will investigate the incident, including links to the victim's associates.
