Earlier on Wednesday, CCTV of the shocking incident made its way online. It showed the last known whereabouts of the victim.
According to the video, Zedan can be seen sitting at a table with someone that seemed to be a friend, but the picture soon changes dramatically. Another male, in a black and orange top, walked in and went towards Zedan and his supposed friend.
The man sitted with Zedan stood up which showed that he knew about the plan, and the other man pulled out a gun and pointed against the target who was in between the two accomplices.
Anti-crime advocate Yusuf Abramjee posted the footage on his Twitter account.
