August 20, 2008, ninemsn:
Police have been forced to avert a near-riot outside a western Sydney hospital after a critically wounded man was dumped at the front door.

The 25-year-old died shortly after being discovered with a gunshot wound by Auburn Hospital staff at around 7pm.

It is alleged he and two masked accomplices had earlier tried to rob an armoured truck that was parked outside a supermarket in George St, Parramatta.

The two guards allegedly saw one of the men had a firearm and opened fire on the trio, who are said to have escaped in a white Mitsubishi with stolen plates.

As the dead man's family arrived at the hospital they were followed by a crowd of up to 100 young men who at one stage tried to storm the front door.
Dead robbery suspect was 'a good man'
August 20, 2008,
RELATIVES of an armed robbery suspect shot dead by security guards say he was "the best guy in the world", the Daily Telegraph reported today.

Kaled Dib, 25, died after a shoot-out in one of the busiest streets in western Sydney last night after masked bandits tried to hold up Armaguard security guards delivering cash to the National Australia Bank on George St in Parramatta yesterday evening.

A post-mortem examination has confirmed he died from the wound to his chest.

Mr Dib was allegedly carrying a gun and running directly towards the security guard who fired one shot, hitting him in the chest.
Sheik Hilaly attends funeral:
CONTROVERSIAL Sheik Taj El-Din El Hilaly has attended today's Lakemba funeral for an armed robber shot dead during an attempted bank heist.

More than 200 mourners have gathered at Lakemba Mosque at midday to pay their respects to Kaled Dib, 25, who died after being shot in the chest by a security guard on Tuesday night.

Dib’s coffin, draped in a green cloth with Arabic writing on it, was carried in by crying mourners as a small uniformed police presence kept watch on the proceedings in Wangee Rd.

The street was blocked off for the procession, which was attended by Sheik Taj Din al Halali.
Kaled Dib had criminal past:
... the dead would-be robber, Kaled Dib, 25, of Lidcombe, was convicted of assaulting two security guards at Parramatta's Albion Hotel earlier this year.

He also had unlicensed driving convictions from 2007 and police intelligence reports linked him to the drug trade, armed robberies and to criminals linked to armed robberies, police sources have confirmed.
Killed bank robber was building a new life:
MUSLIM youth leader Fadi Rahman, who addressed the funeral of slain robber Khaled Dib, said Dib had been engaged in street crime but had tried to clean up his act.

He had married just under a year ago and had been setting up home in Auburn with his wife. For the past eight months he had been working as a courier driver.

His family was struggling to understand his actions.
