“The man attempted to hold the front door closed to stop the man and the woman entering at which time the firearm was discharged through the door striking the resident in the arm.”

Police say the pair and the victim were not known to each other.

An investigation has been ongoing ever since, and on August 2, a 26-year-old woman was arrested and charged with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.

She is due to face Maroochydore Magistrate Court on September 20.

Police are still trying to locate the man who fired the shot into the door and also are appealing for information in relation to two other people believed to have been inside the wanted car at the time of the shooting.
