QLD Woman Accused Of Murdering Partner Overnight
A woman is due to face court on the Gold Coast over the shooting murder of her partner.
The 39-year-old woman is alleged to have fatally shot her 46-year-old partner at her Southport home around 2am on Wednesday.
She will face Southport Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with murder and unlawful possession of a weapon.
Detective Acting Inspector Matt Ward said the woman was the one who called triple zero to report the shooting.
The man, who did not live at the property, is believed to have arrived at some point during the night.
"Suffice to say he hadn't been there for a substantial period of time," Det Act Insp Ward said.
He said while there was no history of domestic violence involving the couple, it was an avenue police were investigating.
Police have also interviewed two other people who were in the home at the time of the shooting while a child and two other adults were in a caravan on the property.
