Police are hunting for intruders who fatally shot one man and attacked another with a hammer during a home invasion south of Brisbane.

An unknown number of people broke into a house at Gleneagle and shot a 48-year-old, named by media as Michael Menzel, in the leg just before 6am on Monday.

He died shortly afterwards.

The intruders also attacked a second man, 40, who is in a stable condition after being hit on the head with a hammer.

Mr Menzel’s 13-year-old daughter was in the house at the time. She is not believed to have been physically injured.

Police won’t confirm reports she witnessed the attack on her father.
