Confronting footage has been released showing the moment a Sydney gangster was shot dead outside his Greek home in a cold-blooded execution.
Underworld figure John Macris, 46, had just got in his Smart car outside of his Athens home at 8pm last Wednesday when he was approached by an assassin and shot four times through the chest.
The video shared by Athens newspaper Kathimerini shows the shooter running to the driver’s window of the car and opening fire with a shotgun.

His assassin then leaves the victim to die alone in his car and flees the scene.
The whole hit was filmed on a closed circuit camera just meters away.
After the first round of fire, Mr Macris got out of his car and tried to escape but the assassin kept shooting at him.
Macris had been in his car parked outside his four-storey luxury villa in Voula, 23km south of Athens.

On Sunday, close friends and family of Macris attended the former underground figure’s funeral in Athens.
Police have started their investigation into the cold-blooded execution and have reportedly asked Interpol to share Macris’s criminal history in Australia.

Local media reports neighbours saw his wife Ms Karyda screaming in the street after she came home to find her husband’s body.
Ms Karyda’s designer told Fairfax media that the couple were ‘very close’. Yet he doesn’t believe the mother-of-two had no idea about her husband’s criminal past.
‘Even if her husband had any sort of other job I don’t believe she knew anything because she lived in her own world, she was in a cloud,’ he said.
