Detectives from Organised Crime Gangs Group have charged five people on 22 offences, in relation to a shooting incident at Underwood on July 13.

Just after 12.20pm, it will be alleged a Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi Outlander attended Nevilles Street, where the Toyota Hilux entered a car park.

Shots were then allegedly fired from the front passenger seat of the Hilux, towards a 35-year-old man who was standing in the car park.

It will be further alleged the 35-year-old man produced a firearm and fired shots towards the Hilux, before it drove away from the scene along with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

A roller door at a nearby business was allegedly damaged in the incident.

Police will allege the 35-year-old man and persons in the vehicles were members of rival gangs.

Police attended and declared the area a crime scene, launching Operation Victor Subtraction to investigate the circumstances of the incident.

At approximately 1.45pm that day, a 23-year-old man presented to Princess Alexandra Hospital with a gunshot wound to his ankle. It will be alleged he was the driver of the Toyota Hilux.

No other persons were physically injured.

Organised Crime Gangs Group Detective Superintendent Troy Pukallus said Queensland Police Service (QPS) condemn the actions of any persons who conduct themselves in such a dangerous manner, and unlawfully discharge a firearm in a public space.

“This behaviour is reckless and endangers the lives of innocent bystanders, it is extremely fortunate that no member of the public was injured in this incident,” Detective Superintendent Pukallus said.

“The subsequent investigation by both specialist and regional investigators resulted in quickly identifying and apprehending those allegedly involved to further protect members of the community.  Any persons with information relating to this incident are encouraged to contact Policelink or Crimestoppers.”

Investigations are ongoing.
