A vital clue has emerged as police investigate the "callous" murder of a Sydney teenager executed as he slept in bed.

15 year old Brayden Dillon was shot in the head at around 6am at a home on Moresby Avenue in Glenfield on Good Friday, 14 April 2017.

He was rushed to The Children's Hospital at Westmead, but died a short time later.

After reviewing hours of CCTV footage around the area, Homicide Squad detectives attacked to Strike Force Wongala have identified a white Mazda 3 hatch with green p-plates and blurred registration believed to be connected to the teenager's murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Henney is appealing for help to identify the vehicle which police believe is the only one which fits the timeframe of the murder.

"This car arrives in the area about 15 minutes before the murder and is seen leaving the area less than five minutes after the murder.”

"Unfortunately, the registration is not clear in any of the vision we have reviewed, and while we are still going through other CCTV, we hope a member of the community may be able to assist.”

“From the information we have gathered, the murder was planned and calculated, so it’s likely there are people who know what happened, even if they weren’t directly involved.”

“Brayden’s murder was particularly callous – this was a 15-year-old boy who was shot dead while he slept in his bed over the Easter weekend.

“This Wednesday would have been Brayden’s 16th birthday, and we hope the community will help us give his family the gift of justice,” Det Ch Insp Henney said.
