Detectives are investigating the armed robbery of a service station at Southbrook, near Toowoomba, early this morning.
Shortly after midnight, two men arrived at the Gore Highway business in a dark-coloured Ford Falcon sedan.
One of the men was armed with a shotgun which he discharged into the locked glass doors, resulting in a large hole.
The two men then forced their way into the premises before threatening the male employee and demanding money and cigarettes.
The two men left the business with a sum of cash and cigarettes in a Ford Falcon towards Pittsworth.
The male attendant did not suffer any injuries during the incident.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has dash-cam vision from the area to contact police.
