Brisbane Gunman Still On The Loose

Investigations are continuing into a suspected homicide west of Brisbane.

Neighbours called emergency services around 2am on Friday after hearing a gunshot from a property at Booval, Ipswich.

When police arrived, they found a 26-year-old man who had died of a gunshot wound, along with another man, 27, who suffered minor head injuries and was taken to hospital.

A 24-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, who were also at the house at the time, were assisting police with the investigation on Friday.

"We haven't ascertained what weapon was used."

Forensic officers continued to comb the house on Friday afternoon and police blocked off part of the street as they searched for evidence.

Officers also spent much of the day doorknocking nearby residents.

One told of being woken by gunfire.

"Just a shot. That was it," the unnamed man told the Nine Network.

But Detective Inspector Lew Strohfeldt said police had no suspects.

The address was known to police and neighbours said they often saw different cars coming and going, Channel Seven reported.
