Cars shot at while driving along the Pacific Motorway

UPDATE 10:30AM | DETECTIVES are investigating a series of shootings in southeast Queensland, with two cars shot at on the Pacific Motorway and another sprayed with bullets in the driveway of a Gold Coast home.

The first incident occurred in Maudsland around 1.45am when several shots were fired into a car parked in the driveway of a home on Felling Drive.

Police said the vehicle was not occupied and no one was injured.


Then, around 3.30am, police said a man was driving north along the Pacific Motorway at Rochedale when he heard something hit the side of his ute.

He saw the driver of a passing car pointing what he believed was a firearm towards him through an open window.

The man heard another object hit his ute before the offending vehicle sped off the highway via the Logan Road exit.

Police said there were two bullet holes in his ute, one in the rear passenger mudflap and another in the passenger side door. Fortunately, the 30-year-old driver was not hurt.

Finally, around 8.10pm, shots were fired into a car driving south on the Pacific Motorway at Coomera. Thankfully, the 56-year-old male driver escaped uninjured.

Police said a vehicle that may have been involved was last seen taking the Foxwell Road exit.

Logan and Coomera detectives are now working together to establish whether the incidents are linked.

Anyone with any information that could assist police with their investigation is urged to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
