One arrested after men shot in violent suburban fight

Police have charged a man over an alleged shooting incident outside a Buddina home.

It's alleged about 8.20pm on Friday, July 24 three men and a woman attended an address on Lowana Dr and confronted two men.

Police allege the three men and woman arrived in a red sedan and after a verbal altercation took place, one of the men produced a gun and fired it towards one of the occupants. The person sustained a minor injury as a result.

In a statement, police said a second man from the car produced another firearm believed to be a shotgun and fired the weapon towards the address and occupants, where a 48-year-old Moffat Beach man received numerous pellet wounds.

The Hyundai sedan, alleged to have been seen leaving the address, was located in the carpark of a Brisbane shopping centre yesterday.
