Officers were called to the incident at the Fitness First gym on West Botany Street shortly after midday.

He went into cardiac arrest and was taken to nearby St George Hospital in a critical condition, where he later died. There was a heavy police presence outside the hospital, including three riot squad vehicles and a police car blocking the entrance.
Police asked ABC News not to photograph the hospital entrance doors because it was a "sensitive situation".

Hawi was initially convicted of murder over the incident and sentenced to 28 years in prison after a nine-month trial inbut the NSW Court Of Criminal Appeal overturned his conviction on several grounds.
