second Hells Angels bikie has been arrested as police attempt to solve two drive-by shootings targeting the Ibrahim family.

Police raided a house in the eastern Sydney suburb of Eastlakes and arrested a 26-year-old man who detectives allege is a member of the Hells Angels bikie gang.

During the raid, small amounts of steroids and testosterone were allegedly seized from the home and will undergo forensic testing.

The man was taken to Mascot Police Station before being released pending further inquiries.

Drugs charges may follow, police say.

The arrest relates to two shootings believed to have targeted the Ibrahim family six weeks ago.

On June 30, police were called to a home in Merrylands in western Sydney after residents reportedly heard gunshots.

They arrived to find the front of the home had been riddled with bullet holes while the occupants, a 47-year-old woman and a seven-year-old boy, were inside.

The woman and boy live next door to the parental home of Kings Cross nightclub entrepreneur John Ibrahim.

Less than 24 hours later, police went to Mr Ibrahim's own home in Dover Heights in the eastern suburbs.

They found bullet casings on the footpath and police believe shots were fired there on the same night as the Merrylands shooting.

No one was hurt in either shooting.

Earlier this week, a 21-year-old man was arrested after a raid at a property in the western suburb of Wetherill Park.

Police allegedly found three shotguns, three rifles and a large amount of ammunition at the property, as well as cocaine and steroids.

Police also seized several pieces of Hells Angels clothing and believe the man arrested there is a member of the bikie gang.

The man was released but police say they expect charges to be laid after forensic testing is done.
