Police were called to a property on Handford Rd about 11pm to the injured woman, who was later transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital for treatment.
It’s understood that three men stormed the property, smashing windows and screaming, before shooting the young woman with a shotgun.
Queensland Police Inspector Geoff Acreman indicated the three men who are reported to have fled the scene, were known to those who live at the house.
“It doesn’t appear this is random, it appears the offenders know the occupants of the house,” Inspector Acreman said, according to the Courier-Mail.
“Words were spoken between the course of this event and then the offenders were seen to go to a gold-coloured vehicle and leave the area.”
